EPALE Journal on Adult Learning and Continuing Education #2 - Prison education

The second issue of the Epale Journal is a collective text on educational challenge. In fact, it focuses the attention of educators, teachers, social workers, but also prison staff, on the central themes of learning in a place of detention and the role that training/education can have in reintegrating those who have served a sentence into society. We discover a human situation that is dense, deep, lucid, and intense. A situation featuring many people who work in the prison universe, from the teacher to the volunteer, the educator, the researcher, and the scholar who takes care to introduce, develop and ensure good practices.
