Report from the European Prison Education Association
Behan, Cormac
Journal of Correctional Education, v59 n1 p5-7 Mar 2008
Since the last edition of the Journal, the European Prison Education Association (EPEA) has been officially elected a member of the European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA) at EAEA's General Assembly held at the University of Latvia in Riga. The EAEA is the largest umbrella organization in Europe advocating lifelong learning. It is a European NGO with 130 member organizations in 41 countries working in the fields of adult learning. The European Prison Education Association hopes that with membership of the EAEA, it will be in a position to help influence decisions concerning prison education made in the European Union. Additionally, the article reports that the European Commission (EU) has adopted a Communication in support of the Action Plan on Adult Learning calling on the Member States to work together and support the EU's Action Plan. The Action Plan on Adult Learning aims to help remove the barriers that prevent adults from engaging in learning activities and to improve the quality and efficiency of the adult learning sector. The article concludes with an annotated bibliography of two books from the Council of Europe, "European Prison Rules" and "Crime Policy in Europe."
