Question for written answer E-003096-19
to the Commission
Rule 138
Franco Roberti (S&D) , Giuliano Pisapia (S&D) , Sabrina Pignedoli (NI) , Laura Ferrara (NI)

 Subject:  Prison conditions in the EU and follow-up to the own-initiative report on prison systems and conditions (2015/2062 (INI))
 Answer in writing 

In 2017, the European Parliament adopted the own-initiative report on prison systems and conditions (2015/2062 (INI)), calling on the Commission, within the framework of its competences, to take the necessary steps to improve prison conditions, with due regard for the EU’s role in safeguarding the fundamental rights of prisoners and the creation of the European area of freedom, security and justice.

The following questions are based on the requests made in the own-initiative report.

— Has the Commission initiated a comparative study to analyse the Member States’ alternative measures to imprisonment and to support the dissemination of national best practices?

— Does it plan to publish detailed periodic reports on the situation in Europe’s prisons, including an in-depth analysis of the level of education and training provided to prisoners and an evaluation of the results (including rates of recidivism) achieved by using alternatives to detention?

— Has the Commission decided to launch a European Forum on prison conditions, in order to encourage the exchange of best practices between experts and practitioners across all Member States?
