Research on electronic monitoring in Scotland by Hannah Graham and Gill McIvor, both of the University of Stirling, will be presented at a free international conference on March 17th 2016 in London.

The conference will provide an opportunity to hear about, and engage with, the findings of the European Commission funded project entitled ‘Creativity and Effectiveness in the use electronic monitoring (EM) as an alternative to imprisonment in EU member states’.

The research was carried out in five jurisdictions (Scotland, Belgium, England & Wales, Germany, and the Netherlands) providing up-to-date analysis of current and future uses of EM in each jurisdiction as well as insights gained from the first comparative research of its kind on EM in the EU.

The aim of this conference is to discuss the findings of the research and inform recommendations on best practice to enhance effectiveness of electronic monitoring whilst ensuring its legal, ethical and humane use across the EU. The conference will, however, have greater emphasis on the findings from England, Wales and Scotland.
