Active citizenship in prisons

PAC or ‘Prisoners’ Active Citizenship’ is a two-year project which has been funded by the European Commission under the KA2-program (Erasmus+).

Active citizenship is about people’s involvement in the world around them.

It is the action of engaging with issues, ideas, people and communities. It has the potential to be an extremely powerful force for good in prisons. Engagement during a sentence can help people prepare to re-enter society, able to contribute, participate and belong.

The goal of the project was to test various active citizenship participation models in different European prisons and to develop a participation toolkit based on these experiences.

The toolkit was made possible by a collaboration between the following organisations, as part of the PAC (Prisoners’ Active Citizenship) Erasmus + EU project:
