Professor J. Robert Lilly's Research Highlighted by the Confederation of European Probation

In early December, 2014 Professor J. Robert Lilly's research was referenced in efforts to guide policy development by the Confederation of European Probation (CEP).

The photo, left, has a quote from a piece of Professor Lilly's recent writing that was used in the bi-annual meeting of the CEP --Europe's Probation Council-- last week in Frankfort, Germany. It was part of a major presentation and summary of the European Council's years-long efforts to establish guidelines for using electronic monitors on offenders at various stages of the approximately 20 countries criminal justice systems. No such guidelines exist in the US. 

Congratulations to Dr. Lilly for his impactful work. This is a great example of socially important efforts and the articulation of real social problems and academic research by the a faculty in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Philosophy.
