Social integration and inclusion after being in prison

with Pilar Larroulet and Catalina Droppelmann

The re-entry study is an intensive longitudinal project that follows more than 200 women released from prison in Santiago, Chile. It is funded by the San Carlos de Maipo and Colunga Foundation, and the Inter-American Development Bank. We used interviews over a period of one year to know their experiences on family life, housing, employment, social capital and health. Data collection finished in 2018.
