The RISE Learning Partnership program focuses on education as a factor that can help facilitate the social reintegration of offenders. The subjects covered at the conferences range from individual study plans, life-long learning, and the skills offenders will need in the job market through to the training and motivation of employees in correctional facilities.
This project will be running from August 2011 to July 2013, with regular conferences in each of the participating countries. The project coordinator is based in Berlin, and participating are partners from educational institutions and correctional facilities in Finland, Luxembourg, Belgium, Ireland, and Austria.
