Tshokollo ya Setshabeng


The ‘Tshokollo ya Setšhabeng’ (corrections in the community) engaged scholarship project is an interdisciplinary group that brings together developing and established scholars, community corrections practitioners, offenders (parolees and probationers), ex-offenders, and community members. The project involves interdisciplinary researchers from the Schools of Criminal Justice and Law and focuses on key issues relating to the social reintegration of offenders into communities, the community corrections environment, and recidivism.

The project’s objectives are to

  • build stakeholder relationships with the Department of Correctional Services, and more specifically Community Corrections offices;
  • promote Community Corrections best practices;
  • organise Community Corrections workshops;
  • participate in Imbizos (outreach programmes) and awareness campaigns;
  • support restorative community service projects;
  • form partnerships with relevant Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs);
  • conduct social reintegration research studies; and
  • enhance academic Teaching and Learning practices.
