Released and homeless - Homelessness and housing after imprisonment

Homelessness and housing after imprisonment. Joint report NIBR/Byggforsk/KRUS 2006

One important goal of this project was to acquire and document knowledge about the inmates’ housing situation after release from prison. The report is based on several sources of data. The two most important were a survey of inmates in a selection of prisons and a modified form of network interviews with an inmate, the inmate’s contact office – or the social consultant in the prison in those cases where the inmate did not have a contact officer – and the inmate’s caseworker at the social welfare office in his or her home local authority.
