Waar een wil is, is een (uit)weg? Exit in de gevangenis: processen, programma’s en aanbevelingen

Journal Contribution - Journal Article

One of the priorities on the political agenda in Belgium is the approach of radicalization in prison. Witha modified prison policy and the implementation of disengagement and de-radicalization programsduring detention, the government tries to prevent detainees from radicalizing. The question is whatthe concrete content is and/or should be of such disengagement programs and to what extent theyare effectively achieving their goal? In order to answer these questions, we look at the disengagementprograms of three European countries: Denmark, the Netherlands and Germany. Based on these internationalinsights and expertise, we identify a number of ‘good practices’ for the Belgian situation. Althoughthe Belgian federal and Flemish government have taken a number of initial steps, it is clear thatthere is still much work to be done.
