Jeffrey Morenoff briefs congress on seen and unseen costs of incarceration
October 10, 2019
Jeffrey Morenoff, Director of the Population Studies Center at ISR, and Sam Norris, Assistant Professor at the Harris School at the University of Chicago, presented research on the impacts of incarceration at a congressional briefing jointly sponsored by the Population Association of America (PAA) and the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management.
Morenoff’s recent research shows how family ties, administrative burden (including fees associated with parole and minor infractions), and housing and economic instability exerted pressures that could help or hinder reintegration. This evidence is also detailed in a book co-authored by Morenoff and released this year, On the Outside: Prisoner Reentry and Reintegration.
