The second meeting of the WayOut Project Steering Committee was held on June 24 and 25, 2019 in Lisbon, Portugal.
Besides IPS_Innovative Prison Systems, representatives from the BSAFE LAB of University of Beira Interior (Portugal), University of Toulouse Jean Jaurès (France), Bremen Senate of Justice and Constitution (Germany), Violence Prevention Network (Germany) and Belgian Federal Public Service of Justice attended the meeting with the purpose of discussing not only the project’s Working Packages’ implementation progress, but also to devise activities and review some administrative and financial topics.
The WayOut project – Integrated Exit Programme for Prisons and Probation – is fundamentally aimed at building a common framework to evaluate exit programmes along with the development of an innovative and integrated programme based on proven effectiveness approaches.
Ultimately, WayOut will improve and facilitate the implementation of Exit Programmes across the Criminal Justice system, namely in prison and probation settings. Hence, this project responds to one of the European Union’s security concerns: the problem of radicalisation leading to violent extremism.
