(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The current study elaborates on the study carried out in 2014 into explanations for the development of recidivism between 2002 and 2010. This follow-up study intends to:

  1. identify new scientific insights into factors associated with recidivism;
  2. identify which new policy measures have been implemented (between 2010 to 2015) aimed at reducing recidivism and to what extent they have been properly implemented and also to investigate the current state of affairs concerning previously implemented recidivism reduction policies (before 2010);
  3. map out potential effects of government measures on recidivism, especially the changes within the detention regime and policy adjustments and cuts to the Dutch National Agency of Correctional Institutions (DJI) and the after-care and resettlement organisations.
