On 2-3 November, LCSS Institute of Law researchers Rūta Vaičiūnienė and Simonas Nikartas visited the Centre for Prison Research at the University of Cambridge. Together with colleagues from the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Lithuania, the Lithuanian Prison Service and prison managers, the Institute's researchers participated in a workshop led by Professor Alison Liebling, one of the most renowned prison researchers and the creator of the Quality of Life in Prison Measurement (MQPL). The workshop focused on how to use the MQPL instrument and the challenges faced by countries, that are new to apply quality of life measurement. Initial results of the quality of life assessment in Lithuanian prisons were presented by Lithuanian representatives, while researchers from Latvia, Poland, Romania and the United States also shared their research results. The workshop participants also discussed further research on quality of life in prisons and joint projects.
