Report: 2017 White Paper on Crime— Community Network to Support Rehabilitation

post date : 2017.11.20

Every year, the Ministry of Justice releases a White Paper on Crime, using statistical data to provide a detailed look at the state of crime in Japan and the treatment of criminals.

The 2017 White Paper on Crime includes a special feature titled “Community Network to Support Rehabilitation.” It presents the result of a survey on public perception of rehabilitation for criminals and juvenile delinquents, as well as the analysis on the current state of multi-agency cooperation among the national Government, local government, civil volunteers and various organizations to support offender rehabilitation. The White Paper then identifies the challenges to achieve such cooperation and discusses how a community better collaborate as a network to support offenders’ rehabilitation.

The FPCJ invited Mr. Yoshio Nakamura, Director of the Research Department at the Research and Training Institute of the Ministry of Justice, to speak about this year’s White Paper on Crime.

The briefing had a total of 20 participants, including 9 journalists from Australia, Bangladesh, China, France, U.S.A. and Singapore.
