Developing a Methodology to C= ollect Data on Community Sanctions and Measures and Attrition Rates in Europe (DECODEUR)=20
The purpose of this project is to use the expertise available within the= European Sourcebook Group and the Conférence permanente Europ&eacut= e;enne de la Probation (CEP) to improve and complement the standards develo= ped so far for the definition and categorisation of community sanctions and= measures on all levels of the criminal justice system.
