An international conference, Alternatives to imprisonment in Kazakhstan, was held in Almaty, Kazakhstan from 27-30 October 1999. The conference focused on implementing and improving the effectiveness of criminal sanctions that do not involve imprisonment. Subjects discussed included alternatives to pre-trial detention and custodial sentences, conditional early release, restorative justice and alternatives in relation to minors.
The conference participants adopted this resolution and set of recommendations in order to help the Kazakhstan Government and wider society to expand the use and increase the effectiveness of alternative non-custodial sentences.
The conference was organised by PRI, in co-operation with Soros Foundation Kazakhstan/the Open Society Institute, the Kazakhstan International Bureau for Human Rights and the Rule of Law and the Constitutional and Legal Policy Institute, Budapest (COLPI).
