Summary

A systematic research synthesis design is used to provide a global overview of scholarly studies of measures that promote self-sufficiency in inmates and may save costs at the same time. The central question for this report is: What are experiences in western countries with practices regarding self-sufficiency of people in closed settings? An extensive set of terms was used to search scholarly data bases, including: ‘self-sufficiency’, ‘self-management’, ‘autonomy’, ‘strength-based treatment’, ‘inmate-run’, ‘peer support’, ‘decreasing/lowering security level’, ‘IT’, ‘reducing inmate stress’, ‘increasing self-confidence’ and ‘inmate independency’.
