IPPF’s Strategic Plan 2023 – 2028
IPPF publishes new Strategic Plan
IPPF is delighted to announce the publication of its first ever strategic plan covering the period 2023 – 2028. Following an extensive period of consultation with members, discussion of key priorities for international organisations in the coming years, and with the support of external consultant Sarah Cooke OBE, IPPF has created a new plan to guide our historic organisation into a new era.
The plan contains a statement of the vision and mission of the IPPF as follows:
- A safer and more just society through the development of penal and penitentiary standards, policies, and practices which are based on: evidence; respect for fundamental rights and fair procedures; effectiveness; equality and social inclusion.
- To engage in the improvement of penal and penitentiary systems through research and debates, the dissemination of scholarship and expertise, and the facilitation of dialogue between scholars and practitioners.
This new strategic plan plots the course for IPPF’s development over the next five years, promising the implementation of ambitious, but realistic, outcomes across four main areas:
Outcome 1: A better informed research and policy discourse on penal and penitentiary policy
Outcome 2: The development of humane, evidence-based penal and penitentiary standards, policies and practices which protect the human rights of all involved
Outcome 3: IPPF is effective, robust, authoritative, sustainable and efficient
Outcome 4: IPPF has an active and engaged membership
IPPF looks forward to building on its long and distinguished history to continue to shape international discussion and understanding of penal and penitentiary issues in the future. The strategic plan is available here:
