Associate Partners

The Associate partners of the project are listed below and provide essential collaboration on the project but do not sit on the project board:

Ministry of Justice (Republic of Croatia)

Department of Penitentiary Administration (Italy) – The Italian Department of Prison Administration is one of four departments in the Ministry of Justice. The judicial system is divided into two phases – jurisdiction and penalty enforcement. The DAP directs everything that takes place after criminal proceedings end, implementing organisation processes to manage individuals who are either deprived of their personal freedom or are dealt with by alternative measures, the facilities that host them, and the administrative apparatus to operate the entire system.

University of Brescia (Italy) – The University works in partnership with the University of Bucharest and the University of Huelva on workstream 1. The University also hosted one of the workshops for workstream 1 as well as the third project board meeting in Brescia. The Università degli Studi di Brescia was officially established in 1982 with three Schools: Medicine and Surgery, Engineering, Economics and Business. The University saw the expansion of its Schools in 1996 with the institution of the School of Law. This was strongly encouraged by the fact that Brescia was the seat of the regional Court of Appeal and T.A.R. (Regional Court of Administrative Justice). The University now provides a total of 25 bachelor degree courses (thirteen in Medicine, eight in Engineering, three in Economics and one in Law). It also offers four combined bachelor and master degree (Laurea magistrale a ciclo unico) courses (two in the School of Medicine and one each in those of Engineering and Law), seventeen Master Degree (Laurea magistrale) courses (five in Economics, nine in Engineering and three in Medicine and Surgery), three University Masters, forty-two schools of specialisation and twenty-three doctoral courses with their administrative centre at the Università degli Studi di Brescia.
