The project’s final design and activities will only be decided upon at the end of the inception phase, based on the needs assessment to be carried out during that phase and the input from the Stakeholder’s Platform which is being established to discuss and adopt the main orientations and priorities of the project.
Among the aims currently being examined, which may be integrated into the final design of the project, are improving and strengthening the functioning of the probation service; promoting greater use of alternative sanctions; introducing programmes to help increase the prospects of successful reintegration of prisoners, as well as developing the professional skills and management capacities of prison staff. It may also include reviewing and strengthening the provision of health care in prisons. Other aspects may still be added in light of the work of the Stakeholders Platform
