Thinking Globally, Acting Locally'’: Applying International Trends to Reentry Partnerships in the United States

Now that reentry initiatives have become more prominent within the American criminal justice system, there is ample opportunity to look to other nations for the strategic implementation of reentry programs to reduce recidivism. Uniting the correctional philosophies of multiple nations that experience lower rates of incarceration is a holistic approach to offender treatment in the United States.
