Over eleven months in 2015 the Committee continues its longstanding monitoring of Serbia’s prisons and penal policy.

The project’s objectives in 2015 are to further increase leverage on the administration to effectuate the reformist strategy and to contribute to the effectiveness of NPM and Citizens’ Ombudsman Office.

Activities include 9 fact-finding tours of 9 prisons and 8 local alternative sanctions offices; reporting on/publishing of the achievements/setbacks in prison reform in 2015; and 1 press conference.
