Return to 'Recidivism Reduction' Page
Effectively and efficiently supporting the reintegration and rehabilitation of extremism-related offenders in a way that reduces the risk of recidivism and enhances public safety first requires framing the context appropriately and creating a synchronous ecosystem of actors.
However, post-release plans are currently prepared locally on a case-by-case basis by government actors disparate from federal prosecutor offices and probation services. Yet, handling extremist offender reintegration in an ad hoc manner results in a limited capacity to evaluate, unify, or replicate good practices.
The 4R Network serves to create a community of practice composed of those directly or indirectly working to facilitate rehabilitation, reintegration, and recidivism reduction efforts in the United States. We seek to advance the capacity of all stakeholders to collectively construct knowledge and synchronize new understandings in the field of rehabilitation and reintegration by taking up each entity’s contributions and combining them into new insight.
Through 16 two-hour sessions, delivered by leading national and international experts, network members will:
- Increase their knowledge and awareness of evidence-based practices in regard to reintegration and recidivism and bring knowledge and experience from multiple disciplines to make knowledge-construction transdisciplinary; and
Enhance their capacity to coordinate care with governmental stakeholders and provide effective rehabilitation, reintegration, and recidivism reduction support services.
