The EPEA is an European Organisation concerned with prison education. It was the driving force behind the creation of the Council of Europe Recommendation R (89) 12 with concern of prison education.
Among the speakers was the Chairperson of the EPEA, Ms Anne Costello, who said: "As you know, the EPEA exists to represent the interests of those working in the field of prison education across Europe, and personally, I believe that Norway is an ideal base for the organisation. There are a number of reasons for this, not least due to the fact that FOKO is the largest branch of the EPEA and can provide the necessary personnel and facilities, but also because of the high standard of prison education provision of which Norway can be proud"
A full coverage of the event can be found in the forthcoming issue of the EPEA Magazine. The magazine will be circulated among members.
