QUT School of Justice - Research Project

A QUT criminologist is studying former offenders to shed further light on the process of "going straight" with the aim of cutting the growing prison population by helping more people to stop reoffending.

PhD researcher Rob Robertson, from Queensland University of Technology's School of Justice, is seeking participants for a study that will involve in-depth interviews with men and women who have had no convictions in the past five years after release from one or more years in prison. For more information, please contact Mr Robertson on (07) 3138 7133.
