Many countries in Africa have initiated or are committed to an array of progressive reforms. Fundamentally, these reforms are intended to move correctional Services away from simply providing safe and humane custody and towards a more complex model of risk management with a focus on respect for human rights, offender reintegration and adoption of modern correctional strategies. ICPA/UNDPKO/ACSA were signatories to the Abuja Declaration calling for the […]

Call for Papers – Advancing Corrections Journal, Edition #4 – 2017

Each issue of Advancing Corrections focuses on a particular Theme. For the fourth issue, we would like to build on the Theme of our 19th Annual ICPA Conference and highlight ‘Innovation in Rehabilitation’.

What we are looking for are not examples of single, programmatic approaches but broader, integrated strategies that attempt to improve the way that rehabilitative services are delivered ‘as a whole’. These could be descriptions of services delivered in the prison setting, the community, or ideally, with appropriate continuity from […]

Advancing Corrections Journal, Edition #3-2017

This Edition focuses on the theme of ‘innovative approaches for service-delivery to offenders’. In a recent Strategic Planning session, the ICPA Board endorsed the promotion of evidence-informed practices as one of ICPA’s top three priorities, and so the theme is timely. Modern correctional agencies need to assess the merits of an increasing number of potential innovations (e.g., adopting new technology for services delivery to offenders), or changes in existing practice (e.g., assessment, case management, intervention, or other service-delivery frameworks). What will most likely improve performance is not always clear — is there strong enough evidence to support the change in the context of other agency circumstances, would the new approach […]
