This evaluation report relates to PRI’s 2.5-year project for penal reform in the Ukraine, using a grant from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation
(SDC) and working alongside local partner organisations: the Bila Tzerkva Training
School (BZTS); the Centre for Judicial Studies (CJS); and the Women’s Information
Consultative Centre (WICC).
The overall goal of the project is to support reform of the penitentiary system of Ukraine, in line with international standards of good practice, so it can deliver justice to and protect the human rights of detained persons on principles of equal rights and opportunities for women, men and children.
The programme has three main objectives:
1.To establish an effective and sustainable Centre of Competence (CC) at the BZTS to support a programme of sustainable penal reform through research, development and training;
2.To protect and improve human rights for vulnerable groups of prisoners, notably pre-trial detainees, women and children, and prisoners sentenced to life imprisonment, in line with international and regional standards and good prison practice;
3. To raise awareness and knowledge of reform and good practice throughout the Ukrainian justice system and the wider public.
