The journal La Revue des Droits de l’Homme published in its 14th edition “The protection of prisoners’ rights in Europe”, proceedings of two conferences of the constitutive project of the European Prison Litigation Network

In 2016 EPLN co-organised two conferences : on 21 April 2016 at the University Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne under the direction of Nicolas Ferran (OIP-SF), Isabelle Fouchard (ISJPS, University Paris I), Anne Simon (ISJPS, University Paris I) and Hugues de Suremain (EPLN) and on 14-15 June 2016 at the European Court of Human Rights under the direction of Emilio Santoro (University of Florence /Altro Diritto), Gaëtan Cliquennois (SAGE, University of Strasbourg) and Hugues de Suremain (EPLN).

These conferences presented and put into discussion results of a comparative research on systems of remedies available to detained persons and aiming at tackling structural or systemic problems in prison (such as prison overcrowding, inhuman material conditions of detention, access to healthcare).

With contributions of Guido Raimondi, Colombine Madelaine, Elisabeth Lambert Abdelgawad, Sonja Snacken, Simon Creighton, Paulo Pinto de Albuquerque and Sofia Ciuffoletti, Krassimir Kanev and Dyliana Angelova, Ioan Durnescu, Rosaria Pirosa, Anne Simon, Clara Rey Sánchez and Esther Pascual Rodríguez.

Proceedings of the conferences are now available in the La Revue des Droits de l’Homme.
