The Portuguese version of the comparative study on non-custodial sentences and measures in the Member States of the European Union (EU), entitled "Non-custodial Sanctions and Measures in the Member States of the European Union: Comparative Report", has recently been published.

The comparative study is the result of the project "Promoting non-discriminatory alternatives to imprisonment across Europe" (PRI ALT EUR), coordinated by Penal Reform International (PRI), with the University of Coimbra (UC) and the Hungarian Helsinki Committee (HHC) as partners, and funded by the European Union (JUST-JCOO-AG-2020). This project aimed to understand and promote the use of alternatives to prison sentences in the European Union, with a special focus on the most vulnerable people and the impact of the pandemic on the application and execution of these sentences.

The Portuguese version is now available here, and the English version, published in November 2022, can be found here.
