On 27 May 2020, the Department of Justice and Equality launched the findings from an international evidence review on recidivism and policy responses.

The report, which was prepared by Prof. Ian O’Donnell from the Institute of Criminology and Criminal Justice, School of Law, University College Dublin is the third in a series of pieces of research that have been commissioned by the Research and Data Analytics unit and builds on the Department’s commitment to support the development of more evidence-informed policy making.
