ABOUT

AIMS

ICPA’s annual conference is one of the largest events in the prisons and correctional field. With over 150 speakers, we provide a rich and diverse programme which covers a wide variety of topics addressing challenges and highlighting best practices. In 2019, ICPA 21st Conference will be hosted by the Federal Prison Service of Argentina and held in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Join us and more than 500 of your colleagues from across the globe for a sharing and learning experience and to contribute to the future of corrections! Hear about best practices, innovations, new approaches and the latest technologies. Take home new perspectives, ideas and a wealth of global insights and practical applications.

Our attendees comprise Heads of Service, CEOs, senior management, correctional practitioners, industry leaders and many experts from the corrections community. If you are a professional working in prisons and corrections or related industries and organisations, then the ICPA conference is for you!
The theme of our 21st Annual Conference is “Strengthening our Correctional Cornerstones: Rights, Dignity, Safety and Support”. For this event we anticipate a conference programme that will stimulate and energize participants from all corners of the world with presentations which will address research, policies, programs and practices relating to reform of the correctional process and best practice examples of correctional environments focused on:
  • respect for human rights;
  • maintaining dignity;
  • enhancing safety;
  • providing support.
Topics relating to the ICPA’s strategic focal points will also be addressed and presented as they relate to the main theme:
  • Effective Community Corrections – including alternative measures and post-release and aftercare services;
  • Investment in Staff;
  • Offender Population-Specific Strategies – particularly strategies to reduce and/or manage pre-trial detainees;
  • Reducing Reoffending.
Please join us to hear about innovative ideas to strengthen our correctional cornerstones!
