Bridge the gap to society

Bridge the gap to society


Tuesday 31. August 2021, 15:00 until 16:00

Venue: Nedjma

Host: Wayback - Stiftelsen Livet etter soning

In Norway, we already have a strong focus on reintegration. Yet, we have seen a trend during recent years, where new prisons are located at far distance from society. What are the consequences of such a development? How easy is it to prepare for release at large distance from the society you are supposed to return to? What happens when these facilities become closed and unavailable to the public? And, more importantly – can a strong link between prisons and local communities increase the chance of a safe return?

On the 31st of August, Wayback and Rescaled Norway are hosting a panel discussion, where these topics will be addressed.

The panel members are Johan Lothe (Managing Director, Wayback), Elli Graf (Managing Director, Elevator) and Anna-Sabina Soggiu (Social worker and PhD-candidate, USN).

The conversation will be moderated by Simen Iskariot Larsen (Head of Debates, Røveradion).
