HWBs Meeting - Rome, September 2016
The last successful HWBs' general meeting took place in Rome at the venue of Hotel Napoleon, on 14th and 15th September 2016.
Members from UK, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, The Netherlands, Romania and Italy joined with great interest. The aim of the meeting was to update participants about HWBs activities, goals achieved, European projects' state of art and proposal for changing the Constitution Act.
During the discussion, several significant differences merged from the comparison between prison systems existing in the European Countries, which inspired the possibility to realize a future conference mainly focused on this issue.
About the Constitution Act, some proposals have been made by the participants, which will be taken in account in the drafting of the new Statute’s version.
Furthermore, participants joined also the Annual Congress of the Italian National Society for Prison Health SIMSPe - Agorà Penitenziaria 2016 - at the Superior Insititute of Health in Rome, during which some members of HWBs had the role of speakers at the International Congress Session.
