The conference will tend to give not only an impulse for the debate among representatives of criminology, penology and criminal law, but also ought to engage representatives of other disciplines, in particular sociologists and anthropologists.

In accordance with the scientific programme of the European Centre for Penological Studies, future discussion on criminal policy should take place in the broader context of general social knowledge, this is why we encourage also representatives of sociology (sociology of law), resocialization (probation and penitentiary issues), and also social work (in the justice system) to take active part in the conference.
