Having an Impact on Probation and Prisons

13 Aug 2010

We are delighted to announce that throughout the remainder of 2010 Fergus McNeill will be acting as an academic adviser to the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union in relation to the implementation of the EU Framework Decision on the supervision of probation measures and alternative sanctions.

 

Additionally, from 2010-2011 Fergus will be a member of the Prison Review Team  undertaking a review of the conditions of detention, management and oversight of all prisons in Northern Ireland, at the invitation of the Minister for Justice.

 

These represent a significant contribution to policy and practice developments, and SCCJR view them as important vehicles for supporting the impact of research beyond academia.  If you would like further information about either of these activities please contact Fergus McNeill.
