PRI launches three flagship publications: a Toolbox on the UN Bangkok Rules, including PRI’s first free e-learning course; a Detention Monitoring Tool to help monitoring bodies to detect and prevent torture; and a brand new edition of our popular Juvenile Justice Manual.
Reducing unnecessary imprisonment remains at the heart of what we do. An OSF-funded project in Georgia concludes this year, with statistics now showing greater use and awareness of community service. In East Africa we take the first steps to establish a pan-African Network on Probation and Community Service.
PRI also continues work to protect the rights of children in conflict and in contact with the law, pushing for greater recognition of their needs and engaging in practical projects to establish child-friendly justice systems.
