PRI will be running a workshop at the American Probation and Parole Association’s Annual Training Institute that will take place in New Orleans between 3 – 6 August 2014.
The workshop ‘An international perspective on women in the justice system: Best practices for their success beyond the criminal justice system’ will look at both challenges and solutions for women in the criminal justice system, building on international standards and perspectives.
Drawing on the 2010 UN Rules for the Treatment of Female Prisoners and Non-Custodial Measures for Women Offenders (The ‘Bangkok Rules’), presenters will address specific characteristics of the female prison population (and offenders serving non-custodial sanctions) in the USA and around the world, with a particular focus on trauma and violence and its impact on reintegration.
Presenters include Olivia Rope, PRI’s Programme Officer and Dr. Barbara Owen, Professor at California State University – Fresno, and it will be moderated by Deanne Benos, Founder and Principal of Open Road Policy.
PRI’s Toolbox on the Bangkok Rules will be available to participants.
