A First Look At Second Chances; Harvard Scholar Launches New Prison Research

This month Bruce Western, sociology professor and faculty chair of the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management, commenced the New York Reentry Study (NYRS). The two-year project will examine social and economic life of released prisoners and their families in New York City.

The study, made possible by a $270,000 grant from the J.C. Flowers Foundation and a $110,000 grant from the Charles Koch Foundation, will follow 25 men leaving New York’s Rikers Island Correctional Facility for New York City neighborhoods. NYRS will also interview a network of respondents’ family members.
