EUROPEAN COORDINATORS

Helene and Aurelia oversee the project, contribute to its diverse outcomes and support national coordinators and working groups. They operate from Belgium.

Helene De Vos

After her studies in criminology (KU Leuven/Université de Montréal), Helene became a prison researcher at the Leuven Institute of Criminology. Her research focuses on the normalization of living conditions in Belgian and Norwegian prisons. By spending a great deal of time in these prisons, not only her academic interest grew, but also her motivation to change the prison system. That is why she joined RESCALED.

Aurelia Bijnens

Aurelia Bijnens holds a master’s degree in Criminology (Ghent University, 2016) and is an education coordinator in two Belgian prisons. As education coordinator she is responsible for developing and implementing an education programme within the prisons. Her experiences with the limitations of the current prison system motivated her to join RESCALED in 2020. 

Jana Robberechts

Jana Robberechts holds a master’s degree in Criminology and is currently a prison researcher at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Her research focuses on digitalisation in prison. In 2021, she joined vzw De Huizen and RESCALED as the financial and administrative coordinator.
