WHAT WE DO

WHAT WE DO

RESCALED coordinators, partners and ambassadors are combining forces to promote small-scale, differentiated and community integrated detention houses. We do so from a deep conviction that is rooted in key values and based on scientific evidence. When deprivation of liberty is the only solution, it should take place in detention houses. Our values are what drive us to give our best every day.

BUILD NETWORKS

By connecting with policymakers, practitioners, journalists and researchers from all over Europe, we build networks and platforms to exchange ideas on small-scale detention and co-create solutions.

03.

SHARE KNOWLEDGE

We build, collect and share knowledge and expertise on detention houses and their implementation, namely by mapping existing projects and through the RESCALED research network.

RESCALED Research Network

The RESCALED Research Network is an independent collaborative network initiated by RESCALED. It brings together scholars who are interested in research on small-scale, differentiated and community integrated detention houses. It aims to:

  • stimulate research on all aspects of detention houses (small-scale, differentiation and community-integration) through active exchange, collaboration, and applying for funding;
  • increase research impact by fostering collaboration between scholars, prison administrations, policy makers and practitioners;

create an evidence-base on the advantages and risks of detention houses.

People who join the RESCALED Research Network will be invited to meet scholars, policy makers and practitioners at RESCALED events, join panel discussions at conferences, participate in funding applications, and disseminate findings and ‘best practices’ via the RESCALED website and other media.
