Abstract [sv]

Studien syftar till att undersöka hur frivården i Sverige arbetar för villkorligt frigivnas återanpassning till samhället. Med återanpassning menas att individen efter att ha avtjänat av fängelsestraffet ska återgå till en icke-kriminell livsstil. Detta delas i studien upp i strukturella, sociala och individuella faktorer som kan påverka återanpassningen. Sex kvalitativa, semistrukturerade intervjuer med frivårdshandläggare, tillsammans med tidigare forskning om ämnet, ligger till grund för studien. En viktig del som lyfts upp i resultatet är att frivårdens egentliga huvudmål är att arbeta med att minska risken för återfall i brott, inte den enskildes återanpassning till samhället. Resultatet analyseras sedan i relation till tidigare forskning och Bronfenbrenners systemteori, Goldbergs avvikelsespiral samt Goffmans teori om stigmatisering. Detta eftersom tidigare forskning indikerar att personer som blivit dömda i hög grad riskerar att utsättas för både stämpling och stigmatisering.

Slutsatsen som dras i studien är att även om frivården inte uttalat arbetar för individers återanpassning till samhället efter villkorlig frigivning så har de många insatser och program som kan främja en lyckad återanpassningsprocess.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study is to examine and analyse how the probation offices in Sweden is working for the reintegration into society for conditionally released prisoners. In the studyreintegration means that the individual, after serving a prison sentence, should return to a non-criminal lifestyle. The factors which can affect the reintegration process is divided into structural, social and individual factors. In the study, six qualitative, semi-structured interviews with probation officers, together with previous research on the subject, form the basis of the study. An important part that is highlighted in the result is that the main purpose of the probation offices is to reduce the risk of relapse in crime, not the individual's reintegration into society. The result is then analysed in relation to the previous research, as well as Bronfenbrenner's system theory, Goldberg’s deviation spiral and Goffman's theory of stigmatization. This is because previous research indicates that people who have been convicted are at high risk of being both labelled and stigmatized.

The conclusion drawn in the study is that although the probation officers do not expressly work for individuals' reintegration to society after conditional release, they have many alternatives of both interventions and programs that can promote a successful reintegration process.
