Applying the knowledge base

Once the knowledge base has been created it needs to be capable of application in real life situations. The Centre assists this process by undertaking a series of practical prison reform projects in a variety of countries and regions.
These projects are all carried out within the context of the international standards relating to imprisonment. ICPS becomes involved in them in a variety of ways. Sometimes there is a direct approach from official sources within the country or region concerned.
Sometimes they are centred on themes which have been identified as requiring particular attention. Other projects, such as those in individual countries, have a more specific focus.
