The PRI ALT EUR project aims at understanding and promoting the use of alternative sentences to imprisonment within the European Union, with a special focus on the most vulnerable people and on the impact of the pandemic on the application and execution of these sentences.

Guided by the ‘Council Conclusions on alternative measures to detention: the use of non-custodial sanctions and measures in the field of criminal justice’ of December 2019, the project aims to contribute to the knowledge on and the promotion of the use of alternative sentences within the European Union.

The project is coordinated by Penal Reform International – a non-governmental organisation working globally to promote fair criminal justice systems that uphold human rights for all –, partnered with the Institute for Legal Research of the University of Coimbra, Portugal, and the Hungarian Helsinki Committee.
