Part III: Introduction: The boundaries between the inside and outside worlds

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript

Abstract

In Part III research from across Europe and Canada explores the challenges faced at the boundaries of prison institutions, namely points of interaction with the outside world and prisoners’ experiences of the process of release from prison and re-entry into the community. Tensions between prison and outside identities, cultures and expectations, as well as the impacts this may have on prisoners and staff are considered. Often how the re-entry process is experienced by (ex)prisoners is neglected in favour of evaluations of the measurable success of interventions to achieve outcomes such as successful programme completions, referrals to other services, gaining housing, employment or training. However, modern desistance theory emphasises the need to actively engage with prisoners and their personal emotional journeys of change in order to successfully support them to re-enter, reintegrate and settle into communities (see Healy 2014; Maruna 2001). However, the concepts of re-entry, resettlement, reintegration and desistance need to be defined in order to appreciate the realities explored in this part of the book.
