This project will utilise a mixed-methods approach to explore the potential role of stable housing in turning ex-prisoners away from crime. It will follow up a cohort of prisoners preparing for release with pre- and post-release interviews gathering a wealth of information, which will then be analysed to ascertain the relationship between stable accommodation and recidivism in New Zealand.
