In recent South African correctional history the release of inmates has become the topic of much debate. The researcher investigated the phenomenon in a number of different countries. Release practices in Scandinavia were investigated, with the emphasis on Denmark, where reintegration of inmates back into society after release has proven to be successful. In addition, noteworthy release practices in Africa were also investigated. Included in the discussion is the extra-mural labour practice from Botswana and how the perpetrators of genocide are dealt with in Rwanda. The research is rounded off with discussions about the release of inmates in South Africa.
