Online International Seminar, Tuesday 27 April 2021, 13:00-15:00 BST

The International Network for Criminal Justice (IN-CJ) is hosting the THIRD international webinar of this year on the topic of PROBATION. In this webinar we are opening up a conversation about how the experience of rapid change during the pandemic has affected practice and what will be the long-term impact on the supervision of offenders in the community. How has on-line contact affected work? What is the role of telephone technology?

The event is being co-chaired by Professor Ioan Durnescu from Bucharest University, Romania and Sonia Flynn, CBE, Chief Probation Officer and Director Women, HM Prison and Probation Service, England and Wales.

The programme includes presentations from different parts of the world:

  • An Introduction to the Use of On-line Technology in Probation Supervision – Professor Ioan Durnescu, University of Bucharest, Romania.
  • Cell Phones to the Rescue: leveraging technology to improve supervision outcomes – Professor Ron Corbett, University of Massachusetts, Lowell, USA.
  • Future Priorities for Tech Development in Probation – Panel discussion

Each presentation is followed by questions from the audience. In answering these questions, the presenters are joined by round-table experts.

  • Romania 15:00-17:00
