Objective

This online seminar, which forms part of a series of five co-funded by the European Commission on enhancing cross-border mutual legal assistance and recognition of decisions within the context of detention will focus on the European Prison Rules, which have and still are acting as a standard-setter for European prison conditions, as well as the work of the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT). An overview of issues concerning actual prison conditions, as well as possible alternatives to imprisonment, will be given and assessed.
