In 2012, the Conditional Penalties (Mutual Recognition and Enforcement) Act (Wvs) and the Measures Involving Deprivation of Liberty Act (Wvm) entered into force. The Wvs seeks to prevent recidivism though a personal approach that aims to stimulate behavioural change. The Wvm has extended the range of possible sanctions that a court can impose: the imposition of measures involving deprivation of liberty is no longer limited to the context of a suspended sentence. The evaluation focuses on the policy logic of both acts, on the implementation and on the practical implementation and effectiveness.
