The purpose of the project Education, Training and Prison and Probation Service in a Lifelong Learning Perspective, a Nordic Study of Structures and Models, is to provide a concise, overall and updated comparative view of education and training in prisons in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, as well as a brief description of the situation in Iceland. Based on these observations, general analyses of strengths and weaknesses were then made in order to identify a common basis for progress in the field. The project group has put forward joint Nordic recommendations for improvements. The results and recommendations can also be applied to the Adjacent Areas, and to other countries in their efforts to develop their prison education systems.
