Author(s) : CIPC

 

 

The 3rd World Congress on Probation was held in Tokyo, Japan, from September 12 to 14, 2017. The Congress mainly focused on the development of probation and the role of the community, with the aim of highlighting how important active community participation is to prevent recidivism and promote the reintegration of individuals. The event was hosted by several organizations: the Rehabilitation Office, the Ministry of Justice of Japan; the United Nations Asia and Far East Institute for the Prevention of Crime and the Treatment of Offenders (UNAFEI); the Japan Rehabilitation Aid Association; the National Federation of Volunteers Probation Officers; the National Association of Offenders Rehabilitation Services; the Japanese Association for the Rehabilitation of Offenders.

 

ICPC took part in the Congress as a presenter during a workshop called "Evidence-Based Theories and Practices involving Offenders with Special Needs". 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.
