Since June 2005, the Prisoner Reentry Institute has sponsored a monthly Occasional Series on Reentry Research that features emerging research on topics related to incarceration and reentry. The Occasional Series is designed to serve as a vehicle for disseminating emerging research and generating conversation to improve policy and practice within the field of reentry.
At each lecture, a researcher presents new research, followed by reflections from a policymaker and practitioner on the implications of the research for service provision and public policy. We distribute brief biographies for each panelist, a bibliography of related journal articles, books, and reports, the powerpoint slides presented by the researcher (if applicable), and the report or journal article containing the research. Links to these materials are provided below.
