Description

This project will utilise a mixed-methods approach to explore the potential role of stable housing in turning ex-prisoners away from crime. It will follow up a cohort of ex-prisoners and use short pre- and post-release interviews and statistical analysis to ascertain the relationship between stable accommodation and recidivism in New Zealand.
