The two year study by criminologists Professor Gill McIvor and Dr Hannah Graham, working with an international team, sought the views of criminal justice social workers, Scottish Prison Service staff, sheriffs, the Parole Board for Scotland, Police Scotland, G4S monitoring staff and Scottish Government policymakers, among others.
