COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is Europe’s longest-running intergovernmental framework for cooperation in science and technology funding cooperative scientific projects called ‘COST Actions’. The Action on Offender Supervision involves participants from 22 European Countries. Bringing together scholars, practitioners, policy-makers and interested citizens its focus is the expanding scale and range of community-based sanctions within criminal justice systems across Europe. Dr Nicola Carr, the local event organiser, is a member of the Management Committee for the Action. Commenting on the event she said: The Action has provided an excellent opportunity for early career researchers and established academics to engage in comparative research. It has also highlighted this important area of the penal system, which despite its expanding scale is often subject to limited research.’
