This report describes the inmates' social situation following their participation in the EM release programme.
The government has assigned the task of evaluating this trial project to the National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå) in consultation with the National Prison and Probation Administration (Kriminalvårdsstyrelsen). This, the second progress report from this evaluation, describes the inmates' social situation following their participation in the EM release programme.
The report is based on questionnaire data, collected from the probation service, relating to inmates who have participated in the EM release project. The information collected relates to the inmates' background and social situation prior to their entering the EM release programme, the measures introduced during their time within the programme, and their social situation six months subsequent to their conditional discharge from the prison system. Additional interviews have been conducted with inmates themselves and with members of their families.
