This publication contains the final report of the project �Women, Integration and Prison. An Analysis of the Processes of Socio-Labour Integration of Women in Prison in Europe�, whose work has primarily contributed to the area �Social cohesion, migration and welfare�. The report contains information about the main scientific findings of this project and their policy implications. The research was carried out by 8 teams over a period of 2 and half years, starting in November 2002.
The research project aimed at identifying the key factors that lead to the social exclusion or the social integration of imprisoned women and to evaluate existing social and penitentiary policies and measures aiming at favouring women ex-prisoners' socio-labour insertion. The project covered France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain and United Kingdom and was implemented through a series of interviews with women and agent prisoners.
The work undertaken included an analysis of the policy and legislative context in each country as well as an analysis of reinsertion measures and programmes run by the different state and non-state agencies during and after prison.
