A second chance means a confident step towards a better tomorrow, and nowhere is that more true than in the justice system, where giving inmates the chance to reform has proven benefits for both themselves and society.

You are invited to join the unique celebration of a ground-breaking project in the Arab world as we launch Tomorrow, I Will Fly, a collection of essays and stories by inmates of Dubai’s penal and correctional institutions.

Authors Clare Mackintosh and Annabel Kantaria share their inspiring experience as Writers-in-Residence supporting the inmates’ work, and Colonel Jamila Al Zaabi, director of Dubai Women’s Prison, explore the project’s positive impact on their rehabilitation and why we need to share worldwide best practice to reach the most successful outcomes.
