From October 22 to 27, 2017, ICPC participated in the 19th International Corrections and Prisons Association Annual Conference (ICPA) which took place in London, United Kingdom. The event was hosted by Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service. Under the theme “Innovation in Rehabilitation: Building Better Futures”, Academics, Directors of administrations, high-ranking Officials, Project Officers and Practitioners were gathered to discuss dignity, human rights in prison and programmes against violence in general.

More than 540 participants were registered and many sessions were organized, dealing with various topics and experimentations. Among them, the architecture and design of facilities, offender-centred programmes and services, rehabilitation and education, strategic reforms, etc.

ICPC took part in the Conference as a presenter during a workshop called "Radicalisation". The presentation focused on the research-action currently being carried out in France which aims to develop a prevention and intervention response to radicalization leading to violence within the probation system.
