Visit to the GULAGECHOES project of Pastor Avo Üprus of the Baltic Crime Prevention Institute, Estonia.

Avo Üprus and Markku Kangaspuro

On 10th  November 2021, Gulagechoes welcomed Avo Üprus to the Aleksanteri Institute. Avo has been giving valuable assistance to the Estonian leg of the project. Avo was deeply involved in the discussion about prison reform that took place in Estonia in the early 1990s and for the past thirty years has devoted his time to supporting people who are serving sentences in Estonia’s prison or who have recently been released from prison and need help to re-adjust to ‘life on the outside.’ Whilst in Helsinki, Avo signed a Memorandum of Understanding on behalf of the Baltic Crime Prevention Institute of Estonia and the Aleksanteri Institute to continue the cooperation with the gulagechoes project.
