From Outlaw to Citizen: Making the Transition from Prison in New Zealand

Author(s): Anne Opie

NZ Society

This book addresses a major gap in knowledge about what it means to be released from prison in New Zealand. It reports on released prisoners' experiences during their first year of transition from prison. It identifies the obstacles to (re)settling in a community and desisting from reoffending, and the crucial support provided by NGOs. It shows how political rhetoric, Corrections' policies and practices and ex-prisoners' social, economic and personal circumstances complicate the transitional process. It highlights the need for a major independent review of the penal and post-release systems.
