Unilink’s prisoner self-service will be in the centre of discussions during the First International Correctional Research Symposium. The event is organised by ICPA in collaboration with EuroPris and the Belgian Prison Service and it will take place on 27-29 March 2017 in Ghent, Belgium. The two-day conference aims to improve the ways the research in corrections is being conducted. The sessions and workshops will be attended by over 40 experts from the field.
Dr Dominic Pearson will focus on the research on CMS (Unilink’s prisoner self-service software) done by York University. His talk “Can Prisoner Self-Service Digital Technology Support Offender Rehabilitation? An Evaluation Using a Natural ‘Stepped Wedge’ Design” is a central part of the symposium.
