Judicial cooperation for the enhancement of mutual recognition regarding probation measures and alternative sanctions

Improving the execution of Framework Decision 2008/947 through awareness-raising and training of judicial practitioners



J-CAP aims at improving the execution of Framework Decision 2008/947, which lays down rules for facilitating the recognition and application of probation measures and alternative sanctions among the European Union Member States.
This project focuses on an awareness-raising approach while also developing practical materials to facilitate the execution of the Framework Decision.
With judges and magistrates as its primary target group and including lawyers at a second level, J-CAP’s activities highlight the importance of the instrument and the fundamental issues that hinder its successful implementation.

By fostering strengthened cooperation and exchange of information between competent national authorities, the project ultimately advances the objective of more effective and holistic rehabilitation policies and practices.
