RG-T2551 : Strengthening data generation for correctional management in the Caribbean

Project Status: Closed

The objective of this project is two-fold: (i) to contribute to the understanding of the causes of the near collapse of criminal justice systems of specific countries; and (ii) to diagnose the steps needed to improve the management of correctional systems with a view to strengthening efficiency and rehabilitative capabilities. Furthermore, the knowledge generated by this TC will feed into a broader knowledge strategy of the Bank´s Citizen Security and Justice Cluster, to better inform the public debate and decision makers about institutional performance of the justice sector. The project will accomplish these objectives through the generation of primary data and the implementation of standardized tools such as a prison survey of inmates and needs assessment of prison conditions. In particular, these instruments will generate information about the socio demographic characteristics of the inmates, criminal patterns, types of crimes, victimization within prisons and access to basic care instruments and services, among other institutional issues, that will help national authorities, policy makers, and directors of correctional systems to plan more strategically, improve managerial approaches, and formulation of correctional policies.
