Costs and benefits of social (re)integration of both adult and juvenile (ex-)detainees

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

It is only recently that municipalities play such an important role in the (re)integration of (ex-)detainees. Furthermore, as a result of the introduction of the new Youth Act (Jeugdwet) on January 1, 2015 major changes occurred recently mainly in the policies of integration aimed at young (ex-)detainees. This means that municipalities are still in the process of developing their role in (re)integration of (ex-)detainees. For municipalities this is a major policy change. However, also the central government has to adapt to the new situation, which requires increased cooperation between central and local government.
The principal aim of this study is: To gain insight into the costs and benefits of social (re)integration of both adult and juvenile (ex-)detainees, to enable municipalities, central government and partner organizations to make a reasoned decision about investments and efforts in this regard.
