The possibility of using mobile apps to promote the reintegration of (ex-) convicts

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

In previous research, the possibility of using mobile apps to promote the reintegration of (ex-) convicts had already been explored, but it was still unclear whether apps actually have this positive effect if they are used. The purpose of this literature study is to substantiate on the basis of (scientific) literature whether the use of an app can support the reintegration of (ex-) convicts. Since little research has been done on apps for convicts, we also looked more broadly at the effectiveness of apps that are used to promote reintegration in populations that are similar or have similar characteristics to (ex) convicts, such as people with addictions, probationers, young people with behavioural problems or people with psychological problems.
