From 10 – 19 August 2016, TIJ hosted the Training on the Management of Women Prisoners for Senior Correctional Staff in the ASEAN Region (Bangkok Rules Training) to provide guidance and practical knowledge on translating the Bangkok Rules into practice. The training program is specially designed to support participants in understanding the international standards regarding the treatment of women prisoners and provide a framework for learning, discussing and sharing commons concerns and successes. The training also provided three study visits in Women Correctional Institution for Drug Addicts, Uthai Thani Provincial Prison, and Ayutthaya Provincial Prison.


Participants are prison wardens and senior correctional staffs with primary responsibility for the operation of women correctional facilities from seven countries in ASEAN region and two additional countries from other regions. All participants actively engaged in group activities and produced concrete Action Plans as frameworks for implementing the Bangkok Rules in their countries.
