Following the success of the previous work, ICPS was asked by the Head of the Russian Federal Prison Service to deliver a further project to provide training and development for the recently appointed local Human Rights Advisers throughout Russia.

Funding was successfully obtained from the Global Opportunities Fund and also the Council of Europe with seminars being run in both St Petersburg and Manchester with small groups of senior staff addressing the problems of measuring and auditing human rights delivery. These seminars ran throughout 2006.
