COST promo

Offender Supervision in Europe, the COST Action chaired by the SCCJR’s Professor Fergus McNeill, has concluded following a major conference in Brussels.

The Action, which lasted four year, has produced its final report, but work is continuing to disseminate what the participating academics learned.
