Prisons: The Rule of Law, Accountability & Rights

Ireland
Dublin

PRILA is a project, funded by the European Research Council, which explores prison oversight. It pays particular attention to prison inspection and monitoring, complaints systems, and access to the courts.

 

PRILA examines the legal frameworks for prison oversight, the structures for oversight which exist in Europe, and the lived experiences of people in prison, prison staff, and staff of oversight bodies of such work.

 

PRILA is hosting a one-day conference at the Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland on Thursday, November 26 2020, which will bring together scholars, practitioners, people with lived experience, NGOs, policymakers, and oversight bodies to explore key issues in prison oversight.

 

Drawing on qualitative and quantitative work conducted across Europe, the conference will provide an opportunity to discuss PRILA’s research findings on matters including:

 

1. How people in prison experience prison oversight;

2. How prison staff experience in prison oversight;

3. The types of structures for prison inspection and monitoring in the EU + UK, their activities, and powers;

4. How a visit from the CPT is experienced by a prison.

 

Registration is free, but limited. Refreshments will be provided.

 

Three bursaries covering travel (up to a maximum of €500), accommodation for the duration of the conference, and meals will be provided for early career researchers (PhD students/ postdoctoral scholars). To register your interest in such a bursary, please email: prila@tcd.ie. Information on the application process for a bursary will be made available in the coming weeks.

 

Date and time: 26th November 2020, from 10am to 5pm.

Location: Trinity Long Room Hub, College Green, Dublin 2.
