Women, Integration and Prison. An analysis of the processes of sociolabour integration of women prisoners in Europe - MIP PROJECT, EUR 21939

Funded under: FP6-CITIZENS

Abstract

The MIP research project has been carried out within the European Union's Fifth Framework Programme "Improving the base of socio-economic research", with the participation of academic research institutions and NGO-s from six European countries: Spain, Germany, England and Wales, Italy, France and Hungary, under the co-ordination of SURT, Spanish partner. The project was launched in November 2002 and will be completed by the spring of 2005.
The objective of MIP has been to develop a comparative research project about the reality of women in European prisons and their life after release - with an emphasis on the efficiency of the social and penitentiary policies which promote their social and labour integration in the six participating countries. The research aimed to identify the key factors that affect the social exclusion or integration of imprisoned women. The evaluation of existing social and penitentiary policies and measures for reintegration of women prisoners was a key objective of MIP. The research aims to contribute to their improvement by formulating recommendations based on the research findings.
