This conference will provide an opportunity to hear about, and engage with, the findings of the European Commission funded project entitled ‘Creativity and Effectiveness in the use electronic monitoring (EM) as an alternative to imprisonment in EU member states’. The research was carried out in five jurisdictions (Belgium, England & Wales, Germany, the Netherlands and Scotland) providing up-to-date analysis of current and future uses of EM in each jurisdiction as well as insights gained from the first comparative EM research in the EU. At each event the main findings of the comparative and relevant jurisdictional research will be presented and critically reflections will be provided by academic experts, policy-makers and practitioners.

The aim of the conference is to discuss the findings of the research and inform recommendations on best practice to enhance effectiveness of electronic monitoring whilst ensuring its legal, ethical and humane use across the EU. The conference will focus on the comparative research findings with a greater emphasis on the findings from England, Wales and Scotland at the London conference.
