BWP – „Be without prejudice – a training project for prison staff for identifying and responding to discrimination in prisons”

The aim of the BWP project – „Be without prejudice – a training project for prison staff for identifying and responding to discrimination in prisons”, is to, through theoretical and practical aspects of the project implementation, trainees (prison staff) in the biennial cycle of adult education to acquire basic knowledge and skills in order:

-to recognize and respond to discrimination in their workplace and social environments from which they come;

-to acquire knowledge to identify and respond to discrimination in prisons and

-to master the mechanisms and techniques for overcoming discriminatory and conflict situations.

The project is designed and implemented by five partner organisations, from three different corners of Europe:
