Call for Projects #ECPA2024 - How to prevent reoffending?

More news about the topic

The EUCPN organises an annual Conference for sharing and disseminating experience and knowledge of Best Practices in preventing crime and increasing safety and security in the EU Member States (BPC). At the same time the European Crime Prevention Award (ECPA) is also handed out. The ECPA is a contest that rewards the best European crime prevention project. The nominated projects are presented each year during the Best Practice Conference. The theme is chosen by the Presidency of the EUCPN and is in line with the EU priorities.

This year the Hungarian Presidency of the EUCPN will emphasise the prevention of reoffending. The growing number of inmates in many European countries is a pressing concern. Research indicates that the social conditions, educational levels and vocational qualifications of inmates are generally less favorable than those of the average population. Consequently, developing skills and competencies during imprisonment is of utmost importance. Therefore, tertiary prevention, which includes resocialization, reintegration, and reoffending prevention, must play a more significant role.
