The motto of the conference was “Beyond Prisons: The Way Forward” and brought together 670 participants from almost 80 different countries.
The International Corrections and Prisons Association‘s Conference and Annual General and Meeting (Montreal2018) took place in Montreal, Canada, from October 21 to 26, 2018, with the Correctional Service Canada hosting the event.
The delegates profile was decision makers and practitioners from prisons and probation services around the world as well as researchers and non-governmental organisations acting in the global criminal justice sector.
IPS Innovative Prison Systems was present at the event, having had a dedicated exhibition space where it publicised the company’s services – including Connexall – and distributed free printed copies of the latest issue of JUSTICE TRENDS magazine. At the IPS stand, the participants were also able to taste of the Portuguese famous sweet speciality: the custard tart (“pastel de nata”).
The ICPA2018, celebrating the 20 years of the Association’s existence that originated precisely in Canada, was also marked by the election of a new Board of Directors, for which Mr Pedro das Neves (CEO of IPS Innovative Prison Systems and Director of the JUSTICE TRENDS Magazine) was elected; he will serve a four-year mandate at this level of responsibility.
