Japan cordially invites you to attend the Third World Congress on Probation, where we look forward to welcoming practitioners and academics involved in community-based treatment of offenders from all over the world.

Practitioners, academics and citizens involved in community-based treatment of offenders are invited to attend this World Congress. The Congress attendees, coming from all around the world, will share their knowledge and experience in the fields of probation, parole, pre-trial procedure, residential services, community corrections, juvenile justice and so on for the purpose of enhancing community-based treatment measures.

The World Congress on Probation―the world’s largest forum in its field―aims to promote and develop community-based treatment of offenders by sharing practical and academic knowledge, as well as broadening global networks in this field.

At the Second World Congress held in Los Angeles, USA (July 14-16, 2015), it was announced that Japan will host the next World Congress in 2017. At the closing ceremony, after the invitation speech from Mr. Tetsuya Fujimoto, Director of the Japan Rehabilitation Aid Association and head of the Japanese delegation, a video was screened containing an invitation from Ms. Yoko Kamikawa, Minister of Justice, as well as a brief introduction of Japan’s rehabilitation services.

Japan looks forward to meeting you in 2017!
