EMEU Presentation at the 9th CEP Conference on Electronic Monitoring in Europe, 11-13 December 2014, Frankfurt – Germany

December 17, 2014

More than 200 participants from over 30 countries came together to discuss the important issue of the use of Electronic monitoring (EM) within the field of Criminal Justice with a focus on Probation and Human Rights.

Professor Anthea Hucklesby took this opportunity to introduce our research project on the use of Electronic Monitoring in the EU (EMEU).

In a few words, the EMEU project aims to compare the operation of Electronic monitoring (EM) for adults in five jurisdictions: Belgium, England, Germany, the Netherlands and Scotland. This comparative research is valuable as EM is organised and used differently across Europe.  The project also aims to:

  • Examine EM in terms of providing an effective and humane alternative to custody and reducing prison populations;
  • Identify best practice across all stages of the criminal justice process.
