Nordic Prison Education

A Lifelong Learning Perspective

image of Nordic Prison Education

Since the 1970s, a variety of multilateral environmental agreements have been created to promote the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. However, these institutions have not been created systematically, but rather on an ad hoc basis as different aspects of biodiversity loss have come to the centre of international concern. Consequently, this has led to the inability of the current institutions to address biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation in a coherent and effective manner. In this report an initial biodiversity cluster is outlined and 12 recommendations are provided for enhancing synergies between the MEAs in the cluster. Most importantly, the report shows that the contracting parties of the MEAs in the biodiversity cluster need to work more closely together to indentify synergistic solutions that meet national needs. The report also highlights that it is not sufficient alone to make existing institutions work more closely together, but points out a missing institutional structure that needs to be addressed. An independent science policy platform is required to provide the MEAs in the biodiversity cluster with timely and scientifically credible advice for achieving more coherent and effective decision-making.

Summary and recommendations

The purpose of the project Education, Training and Prison and Probation Service in a Lifelong Learning Perspective, a Nordic Study of Structures and Models, has been to provide a concise, overall and updated comparative view of education and training in prisons in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, as well as a brief description of the situation in Iceland. Based on these observations, general analyses of strengths and weaknesses were made in order to identify a common basis for progress in the field. The project group has put forward joint Nordic recommendations for improvements. The results and recommendations can also be applied to the adjacent areas, as well as to other countries, in their efforts to develop their prison education systems.
