Journal of Correctional Education, v58 n4 p320-321 Dec 2007
This article presents three organizations: (1) The Executive Board of European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA); (2) The Albanian General Directorate of Prisons; and (3) The Freemuse. The Executive Board of European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA) will recommend the European Prison Education Association as Associate member at the next General Assembly. The EAEA is a European NGO with 120 member organizations from 41 countries working in the fields of adult learning. It aims to support and disseminate members' engagement in activities, partnerships, policy and curricula development, research and provision for social inclusion and cohesion, democratic participation and combating poverty and discrimination. The Albanian General Directorate of Prisons has financed a new prison education initiative. All prison schools and educational staff must find vocational schools near their institution to cooperate with and include their programs and teachers in special vocational courses. The prisoners who attend the courses will be certificated by the vocational school. In parallel the Genera Directory of Prisons are working with the Ministry of Education to recognize the prisoners' certifications on completion of their sentences in prison. Freemuse is an international organization advocating freedom of expression for musicians and composers worldwide--this includes advocacy of the rights for every human being, including prisoners, to take part in musical life. At present, the organization is keen to document and highlight possible restrictive rules concerning access to music by prisoners. Freemuse is documenting any incidents of restrictions, or censorship of music in prisons, or should you be aware of researchers or colleagues that have dealt with the issue of music censorship or restrictions in prisons. In addition, they are very interested in receiving information on any relevant historical documentation (articles/research/links).
