13th OCTOBER: INTERNATIONAL DAY OF EDUCATION IN PRISON 

On the 13th of October 1989, the Council of Europe adopted a set of recommendations outlining the needs and responsibilities concerning the education of imprisoned persons in Europe. These recommendations stipulate that all imprisoned persons should be offered the opportunity to engage in educational activities and that these activities should serve to develop the whole person, be conducive to effective reintegration, and encourage a reduction in recidivism.

GO TO SIGNING THE PETITION

25 years since the CoE adopted recommendations concerning education in prison, EPEA invites you to support and officially recognize this day.
