The future of punishment: Reducing recidivism and promoting societal integration?

The Nordic countries have a reputation of a humane and rehabilitative model of punishment. NSfK’s 61st research seminar explores the current state and development of punishment and rehabilitation in the Nordics. We wish to bring forth perspectives on how recidivism can be prevented and to discuss the form and function of rehabilitation in the Nordic criminal justice system today. What roles do the criminal justice system, the social and health services, and the NGOs respectively play in the Nordic model of punishment and rehabilitation?

Deadline: December 15, 2022. More information
