Ashoka Fellow
Czech Republic
Fellow Since 2015
This description of Dagmar Doubravová's work was prepared when Dagmar Doubravová was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
Dagmar works on decreasing recidivism and developing a more empathetic society in the Czech Republic and Central Europe that understands and reintegrates ex-convicts. She does so by transforming the policies, procedures and practices affecting ex-offenders throughout their encounter with the criminal justice system and post-release, ensuring their smooth transition to non-criminal life and no-return mechanisms. Building on principles of restorative justice, Dagmar creates a comprehensive set of solutions including a national probation system, an employment platform for ex-offenders, and elimination of legislation gaps perpetuating debt traps for ex-prisoners and other vulnerable groups.
