Good practices across Europe

Did you know small-scale, differentiated and community-integrated facilities can be found in many European countries? In order to have an impact on policy and practice, it is key that already existing knowledge reaches key stakeholders, including professionals working in small-scale facilities and policymakers implementing such facilities. Prison Insider, one of the consortium partners of the WISH-EU project, has developed an interactive map that visualizes a database of detention facilities across Europe. Throughout this European-funded project, consortium members identified and visited over 30 good practices from various European regions that apply one or more of the following principles: small-scale, differentiation and community-integration.
