Abstract

Current approaches of the criminal justice system in the United States focus on community control rather than the provision of services and treatment for returning prisoners; however, reentry is a primary focus of correctional systems around the world. 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.
