FORINER "Providing distance education to foreign national prisoners across Europe"
Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, under Key Action 3 (support for policy reform)
The FORINER project, launched in January 2016, was initiated to provide European foreign national prisoners in European prisons with access to qualitative, accessible, certified learning opportinities provided by educational institutions from their home country. The target group of the FORINER project consists of European citizens with an educational need detained in a country other than their country of origin. To satisfy their learning needs a structure was designed and tested which allows education providers to reach out to their national prisoners in other European countries, at the same standard as the home offer. At the same time the FORINER project emphasises the importance of ICT and (secured) internet access in European prisons. With this project the FORINER consortium hopes to boost the use of digital technology for prisoners for educational purposes.
