"I am kind of blacklisted" : The difficulties when reintegrating into society after criminality (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this qualitative study is to investigate the difficulties that people who have committed criminal acts experience when re-entering into society. The purpose is also to examine what can improve the re-entry and reduce recidivism. We therefore chose to conduct interviews to be able to capture the individuals' experience when reintegrating into society after committing a crime. We interviewed six members from Krami, which is an organization dedicated to help individuals who have committed a crime, or who have come out of an addiction. An individual who has committed criminal acts may encounter obstacles, as well as risk of not being accepted by society, and thus end up in exclusion. Therefore, we chose to base our analysis based on three theories that we considered relevant to the study, these theories are the stamping theory, sense of coherence (SOC) and the stigma theory. We draw attention to the fact that individuals who have a criminal past may experience difficulties in finding a job due to employers requesting criminal records, but also that the jobs are offered as jobs with lower status and lower pay. We have also come to the conclusion that there are difficulties with housing, as many landlords request that you have no payment remarks, which many who have served a sentence have. The results of this study also show that family and friends are a good support for reintegration into society, and in combination with Krami, which is an organization for individuals who have previously committed criminal acts.
