Prison visits and Lectures
Was invited to give guest lectures on equality in prisons and rights based approach at both Essex University Human Rights Department and Universidade Estadual Paulista UNESP - São Paulo State University.
While in Brazil I conducted scoping visits at a high security prison, a women's remand prison and a 'resocializaion centre'.
I have also conducted visits to identify good practice or to scope the need for improvement to conditions or alternatives to prison, across a number of countries, including: Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Mozambique and the Netherlands.
