This book contains proceedings from a conference, held in Dublin, Ireland, on employment of prisoners and ex-offenders, including opening and closing addresses, papers from plenary sessions and summaries from panel sessions and workshops. The opening address, given by John O'Donoghue, is followed by "Including Prisoners and Ex-Offenders in Employment and Society: Overview and Conference Objective" (Tom Ronayne). A summary of a panel session on "What Do We Need to Do to Ensure that Prisoners and Ex-Offenders Are Included in Employment and Society?" is followed by five papers from the plenary session on Pointers to Effective Action. Papers are "The Pathways Project" (Martin Walters); "The Outreach Project" (Colm O'Herlihy); "The MABiS (Model Project--Integration of Training and Employment for Ex-Prisoners) Project" (Wolfgang Wirth); "The JUVOS Project" (Andrea Ward); and "What Works and Why" (Andrew McCall). Summaries from three workshops follow. The workshops examined "Education and Training for Prisoners and Ex-Offenders"; "The Employment of Ex-Offenders"; and "Developing Empowering Practices." The document closes with selected quotations from panel members and a closing address by Paul O'Mahony. (KC)
