Is Home Detention in New Zealand Disadvantaging Women and Children?
King, Denise; Gibbs, Anita
This article reviews the use of home detention with electronic monitoring in New Zealand, drawing on research undertaken in 2001. The discussion considers the impact of home detention on women who are subject to this disposal, as well as the impact on the women and children who support those on home detention. The research found that most women were positive about this option but increased tensions in the home and deprivation of liberty for some families are disadvantages of the scheme.
