UNODC hosts 12th Inter-Agency Working Meeting on Women Deprived of Liberty
Within the framework of the Project "Supporting Prison Reform in Panama", UNODC invited the Guatemalan NGO Colectivo Artesana to participate in the 12th Inter-agency working meeting on Women Deprived of Liberty, with the aim of allowing the NGO to present and share their work experience, specifically in relation to the implementation of the Bangkok Rules.
In addition to this objective, two workshops were organized on 8 and 9 October 2013. The first workshop was facilitated for the benefit of technical prison staff of the Panamanian prison system, while the other was directed to female prisoners in the female center "Cecilia Orillac de Chiari". The later workshop aimed to develop a human strengthening process that allows female prisoners to become aware of themselves, therefore allowing them to seek better social reintegration.
These workshops were organized by UNODC, the Prison Training Academy and the General Office of the Prison System of Panama.
