Something about ourselves
We are Roger and Kate two almost retired academics. Roger works in criminal justice management. He has worked for the Council of Europe giving advice to new member states from Eastern Europe on the treatment of people in detention. Kate worked as a manager in a college in Edinburgh. She writes training resources in management and human resources. When we are not working we enjoy caring for our garden and travelling and house exchanging in Europe and Australia.
