Corrections is not only about the time spent in prison. Since most of the people that we incarcerate are released and returned back to their communities at some point, a significant task of criminal justice agencies is also to focus on this eventual ‘return’. From both a decency and a public safety perspective, it is pivotal that prisons and probation do all they can to assist in reintegration. But what constitutes good or effective reintegration? What does a ‘successful’ transition from custody to the community look and feel like? What can we learn from research and practice in this regard? For this symposium, we welcome both evidence-based and practice-informed discussions of how meaningful re/integration can be achieved.
EuroPris and ICPA in collaboration with the Portuguese Reintegration and Prison Service (DGRSP) will organise on 27-30 March 2023 in Porto, Portugal the 3rd international Correctional Research Symposium (CRS) on the theme:
