The Georgian delegation discussed with foreign colleagues the reforms that were made for the last years in the penitential system of Georgia. In turn the Georgian side is ready to share the experience of Hungarian colleagues in employing of prisoners.
According to the Hungarian Corrections system: "Prisons should be designated to hold convicted persons and to provide some kind of meaningful life for them. Being a criminal means to live an outlaw life. Outlaw means the lack of the ability of being integrated into society i.e. the ability to accept and follow its rules as prescribed by the law. Imprisonment in a smaller institution, where the relations of the community are more transparent and are more apt to be followed, can help the inmates to obtain the ability to accept rules and to integrate into a community or even into society"
