International Jesuit Prison Network
We lead the International Jesuit Prison Network, which connects Jesuit prison ministries throughout the world. We established the network in 2013 to support Jesuit organisations and individuals who work in prisons, and with former prisoners transitioning back into the community, in order to create communities of solidarity.
The network provides a platform to:
- share experiences and information about local situations
- share ideas about models of practice and interventions
- identify current issues and common concerns where we could work together to address injustice – such as the death penalty, overcrowding and protecting young people in prison
Prisoners and ex-prisoners are among the most vulnerable and marginalised people in every country. We believe there is benefit in sharing experiences and ideas and mounting advocacy campaigns in partnership across the Jesuit network.
