Center for Detention Studies (CDS) has always been actively participating in improving and completing the implementation of correctional system. Our advocacy is based on research and monitoring which always be done scientifically involving stakeholders. We took this step so that correctional system is always consistent and responsible in organizing the correctional system by putting prisoners need in the first place.

In 2012-2019 period, CDS has focused on restorative justice, counter-violence extremist (CVE), fulfillment of the rights of vulnerable groups (women, children, people with disability, and elderly) and public services issues. Moreover, CDS has also actively involved in regulation drafting related to the correctional system.
