After the summer we will put full energy in another new project: studying the dossiers of 800 young adults who (almost) were sentenced to a “behavior affecting measure”.
Impact launched a new project: the planning, process and effect evaluation of the training “Choose for Change” for detainees.
Impact is the moderator at “diners pensants” for the Dutch Secretary of Security and Justice, Mr. Teeven. Guests are judges, prosecutors, representatives of Dutch Child Wellfare and the NIFP.
