Evaluation of the Conditional Penalties (Mutual Recognition and Enforcement ) Act (Wvs) and the Measures Involving Deprivation of Liberty Act (Wvm)

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

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.
