Title Parole in Sweden and Canada - A Cross-Cultural Comparison of Risk and Electronic Monitoring Parole Practices
Author Bassett, Rhodri
Date 2016
English abstract
Over the past few decades, new philosophies and technologies have impacted parole around the world. Most notably, predicting recidivism through risk assessments has altered the way in which clients are perceived, while electronic monitoring technology has granted the possibility of constant supervision. Due to these recent changes, there are concerns that countries with traditionally rehabilitative parole systems will become more punitive and supervisory. A thematic and metasynthetic review of two countries with rehabilitative parole systems, Sweden and Canada, revealed that risk and electronic monitoring have been integrated to serve balanced agendas that both care for and control clients.
