Incarceration's Grasp: Can the Men’s Reentry Initiative Help Released Prisoners Avoid Relapse into Criminal Behavior?
About 95% of all state prisoners will be released back into the community. In South Carolina, the Men’s Reentry Initiative (MRI), aims to make that transition easier and more successful. Taking a mixed-methods approach, this projects utilizes administrative data, criminal histories, and retrospective interviews. The end goal is to create a greater understanding of MRI’s impact on participants' lives post-imprisonment and humanize the experiences of incarceration.
