Re-entry, desistance and reintegration among women offenders in Chile

Main Contact: Catalina Droppelmann 

This project, funded by the San Carlos del Maipo Foundation, is based at the Institute of Sociology of the Pontificia Universidad Católica in Chile. The project is lead by Catalina Droppelmann, Pilar Larroulet, Sebastián Daza and Paloma Del Villar and its aim is to explore the re-entry process among women in Chile after their release from prison for a follow up period of one year. The results will inform the design and implementation of a gendered oriented intervention that promotes desistance and reintegration after release.
