Introductory Handbook on the Prevention of Recidivism and the Social Reintegration of Offenders
The Centre has developed an Introductory Handbook on the Prevention of Recidivism and the Social Reintegration of Offenders for the UNODC Justice Section which has published a criminal justice handbook series covering areas such as crime prevention, prison reform, alternatives to imprisonment and restorative justice, justice for children and violence against women. The Handbook is based on relevant international standards and norms and focuses on the experiences of low-middle income countries. The Handbook aims to fulfil knowledge gaps and contribute to the development and implementation of measures to reduce the high rates of re-offending globally. It presents policy guidance and examples of promising practices for effective ways to successfully rehabilitate and reintegrate offenders into society, thus reducing re-offending.
