Trends & issues in crime and criminal justice





Evidence for nature-based interventions reducing recidivism among offenders is growing. Nature-based interventions have yet to be trialled with men who have perpetrated domestic violence.

This study aimed to develop, pilot, test and refine an innovative program that incorporates an integrated approach and includes community restitution through an environmental project that operated in parallel to a traditional men’s behaviour change program. Data were collected pre and post intervention with men, practitioners, volunteers and (ex)partners.

Study results indicate initial positive trends in improving men’s wellbeing and engagement, but further research is needed to determine impacts on behaviour change.

EUCPN webinar: public-private partnerships in crime prevention

18 October 2023, 10:30 - 11:00 CET

Public-private partnerships (PPPs) are becoming more prevalent within society, partly because they can take on various forms depending on the topic, objectives and level of engagement of the partners. Yet due to this variety in partnerships, the creation and continuation of PPPs are associated with a number of challenges. This webinar will focus on the key messages. Participation is free but registration is mandatory.
