Aim of the Assistance

The P2P Programme intends to offer to civil society organisations from the Western Balkans and Turkey the possibility to visit EU institutions, as well as relevant EU platform organisations, or whenever relevant for the topic of the study visits, also other European, international or national organisations, in order to familiarise themselves with EU structures, policy making process, programmes, policies and best practices. The aim of this study tour is to give participants the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the EU policies and programmes related to human rights in prisons, as well as to offer them exchange and networking opportunities among themselves and with other European-level civil society organisations active in this field. National and, if possible, regional examples of actions in this field could also be presented to the participants. The study visit is open for the participation of several representatives (one per organisation) from each of the candidate countries and potential candidates to EU accession. Participants will represent mainly NGOs/associations involved in the development and promotion of human rights in prisons.
