Different Paths, One Vision: Transforming Corrections

Hotel Intercontinental Presidente, México City
ICPA and the Mexican Federal Prison System look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful, city of México. Attendees of the ICPA 14th Annual Conference will find their way to the heart of this progressive and exciting city.
Our event will focus around the challenges and experiences that the current international context presents to prisons and correctionals around the world. Securing custody and reinsertion of offenders to society under new schemes of penitentiary management will provide a reflective space to exchange ideas towards meeting society’s needs and its safety.
The program, comprised of around 70 plenary and workshop sessions will attract a significant number of the world's leaders and experts in corrections from the public, voluntary, and private sectors.
