The fifth Reentry Roundtable, held in May 2003, focused on policies, practices, problems, and incentives involved in connecting returning prisoners to meaningful employment. Five discussion papers and four presentations were commissioned and, combined with the discussions that came out of the Roundtable and additional literature from the field, form the conceptual framework for the monograph addressing prisoner reentry and work. The report addresses the in-prison and post-prison work experiences of prisoners and transition planning.
