European Communities of Restoration in Prisons and as Alternatives to Prison
The ECOR conference will take place in Stuttgart/Leonberg (Germany) from February 10th – 12th, 2016.
The EU-Project ECOR deals with the exchange of best practices and the development of good examples for running wings in prisons or as alternative to prisons. The methodology is based on the experience of the APAC prisons and prison units in Brazil. Prisoners live together in “Communities of Restoration”, take on responsibility for themselves and each other, practicing self-government. They also take on responsibility for their crimes and pay back to the community. They are prepared to integrate themselves into the community.
Interesting speakers (e.g. Prof. Friedrich Loesel and Dan van Ness) will talk about best practices in prisons and alternatives to prisons, integration and aftercare as well as Restorative Justice.
