The EUCJ Project Operational Leader Saule Mektepbayeva gave a guest lecture at KAZGUU about the results of a project "10 measures to reduce the prison population". This project was launched in 2012 in a partnership with the General Prosecutor Office launched. This joint project on November 22, 2017 received the “Best Project of the Year” award in the category "Management of a complex project" at the international competition for professional project management in the public sector "Project Olympus" held in Moscow. This project allowed Kazakhstan to move up in the international ranking in the size of prison population: from 35th to 70th place (out of the total 222), in just five years, and rise above some of the of European countries. In the course of the project, the number of prisoners fell by a quarter (from 49,000 in the 2012, to 35,000 today). The reduction in the prison population resulted in the closure of 8 prisons in 2016 and about 12 billion tenge in state budget savings. This exhibition is supported by the European Union project "Enhancing criminal justice system in Kazakhstan" (EUCJ).
