Free copies of ‘Offender Supervision in Europe’?

As you can see from the phot0 below, we’re delighted to announce that our first book (which shares its title with the network) has been published by Palgrave. It can be ordered online here:


This book reports the findings from a surveyundertaken during the first year of our network which now spans twenty countries. As such, it provides the first comprehensive review of research on offender supervision in Europe, opening up an important new field of enquiry for comparative social science, and offering the prospects of better informed democratic deliberation about key challenges facing contemporary justice systems, policymakers and practitioners, and the societies they seek to serve.

Thanks to the generosity of the COST scheme, we have been able to purchase a number of copies, and also can cover the costs of postage and packing. Our Management Committee has agreed that the priority in receiving free copies of the book should go to probation services and practitioners and to postgraduate and early stage researchers (especially but not exclusively in European countries where such services, institutions and people are most short of material resources). If you’d like to ask for a copy, all you need to do is send the following details to

  • Name
  • Full postal address

Happy Christmas!
