Abstract

These are both the best of times and the worst of times for ex-prisoner resettlement. Certainly, the word itself (like its synonym ‘re-entry’ in the US context) has received an enormous amount of attention in recent years (witness this special issue of CJM among numerous similar publications). Everyone from David Blunkett to George W. Bush (in his 2003 ‘State of the Union’ speech) seems to agree that improving the process of ex-prisoner resettlement is an urgent and overdue priority.
