Irish Council for Prisoners Overseas – Client Survey 2021
Download: ICPO Client Survey 2021
In the last quarter of 2020 ICPO undertook a global survey of the 1,100 Irish people imprisoned overseas that ICPO supports in 30 countries around the globe. A very high response rate of 114 replies was received to the questionnaire and has provided ICPO and other interested parties with first-hand information of the experience of prison in another country.
We believe it is important that we undertake our work with as comprehensive an evidence base as possible and that we not merely provide the same supports to clients because ‘that is how we have always done it’. Rather ICPO believes it is important to engage directly with clients both on an individual basis and by means of formal surveys such as this one.
The survey asked questions under a number of different headings – ‘Life in Prison Overseas’ (including during Covid 19), Resettlement and ‘The Services and Supports you Receive from ICPO’.
