The CDPC organised an important event during its 76th Plenary session on the topic of Prison Overcrowding. The aim of the Conference, which was funded together by the Council of Europe and the European Commission, was to bring together judges, prosecutors and representatives of the Ministries of Justice of all European countries in order to discuss the recurring problem of prison overcrowding and the possible practical steps that could to be taken at the different stages of the criminal justice process to overcome it. The possible support and assistance the Council of Europe can offer in this area was also discussed, including by holding a high-level political meeting dedicated to this issue. More information.
