PRI will begin working on alternatives to prison sentences in Europe, starting in 2021.
Our partners for this project are the Hungarian Helsinki Committee and the Faculty of Law of the University of Coimbra.
The project will include a study of European countries’ application of alternatives including how they affect vulnerable and minority groups. We will then conduct training for probation officers in Hungary and Portugal, review sentencing guidelines in each country and design and trial pilot projects on alternatives which better meet the needs and circumstances of vulnerable and minority groups.
