An exploration of imprisoned fathers' needs in the Netherlands

Simon Venema, Eric Blaauw

Onderzoeksoutput: ArticleAcademicpeer review


Roughly half of all men in prison are fathers of minor children. Despite the high prevalence of fatherhood in prisons, little is known about imprisoned fathers’ needs regarding fatherhood and family relationships. In prisons for men, limited attention is given to men’s roles as fathers and the difficulties they and their families encounter. Prison policies generally prioritise safety, security, and good order rather than promoting men’s identities as fathers and supporting families experiencing paternal imprisonment.
