Addressing the Causes of Offending: What is the Evidence?
Addressing the Causes of Offending: What is the evidence? provides an overview of the available evidence on the causes of offending and the effectiveness of the responses to it. The book draws on the views and experiences of researchers and practitioners in Zealand, including those who have been actively involved working with offenders, their victims and their families.
It is hoped that this book will enable this knowledge and experience to inform public debate and policy making during such turbulent times. It is important to ensure that effective laws, policies and practices are not abandoned. Equally, any changes that are made need to be based on sound evidence on what reduces offending and re-offending, comply with international conventions and standards, and improve the safety of the community.
