Recap: 6th World Congress on Probation and Parole

From April 16th to 18th, the 6th World Congress on Probation and Parole took place in The Hague, Netherlands. More than 500 colleagues were welcomed from all continents and over 60 countries. This year's theme was "The Future of Probation and Parole": How do we envision and utilize probation and parole in different settings and developments? What lessons can we draw from the past? And what insights can we gain from each other? The congress offered a well-balanced mix of inspiration, in-depth exploration, and networking opportunities with colleagues from around the globe.
