We continue to promote the Nelson Mandela Rules. In collaboration with the UK government, PRI publishes a Short Guide to the Nelson Mandela Rules, which is now available in eight languages. PRI and the University of Essex’s Human Rights Centre publish a guidance document on the interpretation and implementation of the Rules.
A pilot project with partner Kenya Probation Service is implemented to develop a gender-sensitive approach to the delivery of community sanctions. The subsequent research report is launched in October, and a short film is produced to highlight the benefits and challenges experienced by women serving community sentences.
Our publications in 2016 include the second edition of our Global Prison Trends series, as well as a 10-point plan to reform criminal justice responses to drugs.
PRI establishes a pilot office in Kampala, Uganda, to explore the potential for sustainable funding for penitentiary reform.
