THE INTERNATIONAL CORRECTIONS AND PRISONS ASSOCIATION (ICPA) HAS LAUNCHED ‘PRISONS: THE LAST RESORT’, A COLLABORATION WITH ITN PRODUCTIONS
The International Corrections & Prisons Association (ICPA) and ITN Productions have launched at the ICPA 2017 annual conference, a news and current affairs-style programme ‘Prisons: The Last Resort,’ which explores the challenges caused by growth in prisons populations and the solutions that are being implemented around the world.
Prisons: The Last Resort brings to life innovations, technologies and new approaches in the rehabilitation of offenders and their reintroduction into the community whilst addressing issues such as the security and welfare of offenders. The programme also debates the harmfulness of imprisonment and questions what solutions we might have for the future.
Drawing upon ITN’s 60 year heritage and expertise in storytelling, the news-style piece combines key interviews, case studies and stories including a report from Uganda where voluntary organisations are helping offenders start again.
