Projects roundup

Thursday, 29 October 2020

It's been a busy few months here at the Centre as we've spent the last month or so planning our 'COVID-19 in prisons' project.

In September, our Research Analyst, Matt Ford submitted an article to Antigone's journal on the incidence and spread of COVID-19 in prisons in Europe and the different policies and practices pursued to limit possible infections, illness and death. Antigone will publish the article soon, keep an eye out here for an update. 

Lately we've been planning our upcoming webinar on the impact of the pandemic on prison populations across Europe. Find more information in 'Events'. 

We're hoping to get a dashboard up and running in November which will visualise the spread of COVID-19 in prisons in England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We're waiting on data on suspected cases, cases, tests and deaths from prison administrations, so fingers crossed we receive that soon. In the meantime, take a look at our infographic series tracking coronavirus in prisons in different European states.
