Our ambitions combine an attention to at-risk populations, criminal justice and prison trends and practical reforms.
We hope to see criminal justice systems that respect the rule of law, uphold the rights of suspects and defendants and prevent the unnecessary use of pre-trial detention.
This involves fair and proportionate sentencing which takes into account the circumstances of both the offence and the offender.
We want to see humane treatment and conditions for prisoners and the prevention of torture in all places of detention.
Through this, we hope to see safer communities through rehabilitation and reintegration interventions, as well as interventions to reduce reoffending.
