Third CJPE International Summer Course: what to expect?

Third CJPE International Summer Course: what to expect?

An interview with workshop leader Ioan Durnescu

The Criminal Justice Platform Europe and the workshop leaders are busy with preparing the third edition of the International Summer Course with the theme: 'Criminal Justice in a Polarised Society'. The Summer Course will be a combination of workshops, plenary sessions and field visits bringing together participants with a background in prison, probation and restorative justice from a variety of European countries. What are the differences between this edition and the one from last year and what can the participants expect from the workshops?

'I would say this workshop will really help enhancing their daily practice. We tried to work on topics that are directly related to what they have to do in prison or what they have to do in the probation service, working with this group.

Practitioners need exercises and techniques that they can bring home and use the day after. And that is what we will provide this time.'
