EPEA NL (Netherlands)

On the 5th November 2010 we celebrated the official start of our Dutch EPEA branch: EPEA-NL. For years, in Holland, the EPEA had been a group of enthusiastic, but individual members. Only few of them were (very) active members in the European point of view. We also just didn’t manage to find time to form a branch. But the members were of course individuals with an extended interest in their work, with a curiosity to learn and hear more about how matters are dealt with in other European countries.

For years, in the Netherlands, EPEA-NL had been a group of enthusiastic, but individual members. Only few of them were (very) active members from a European point of view. But the members were of course individuals with an enormous interest in their work, with a curiosity to learn and hear more about how matters are dealt with in other European countries. Now, a couple of years later, EPEA-NL is growing and more people are getting involved in prison education. Together with a couple of other organizations working with prisoners we have formed a consortium which enables us to work and learn together from a broader perspective.
