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.
