What works in the Netherlands and what doesn't?

What works in the Netherlands and what doesn't?

A meta-analysis of Dutch recidivism research into the effects of criminal justice interventions (full text available only in Dutch)

Summary

The international 'What works' approach involves the use of targeted, empirical research as a way of identifying the conditions under which social interventions can be succesful. In the Netherlands interventions within the criminal justice system intended to reduce recidivism have become grounded on the 'what works'-principles. In order to obtain an overview of the current situation a meta-analysis has been conducted of all the comparative impact studies available in the Dutch language area - Netherlands and Flanders. The meta-analysis was conducted in accordance with the guidelines of the Campbell Collaboration.
