Abstract
This article gives an overview over the longitudinal prospective research project on sex offenders in the Free State of Saxony, Germany. This project evaluates the treatment of sex offenders in Saxony’s social therapeutic institutions through an analysis of the causes and rates of criminal relapse amongst sex offenders, including an assessment of criminogenic factors, therapeutic measures, and the climate in the correctional facilities. Questions are also raised as to whether improvements can be made to current methods of criminal risk assessment. The project also places considerable emphasis on a broad examination and further development of the theoretical understanding of sexual delinquency. To this end, next to sex offenders, violent offenders are examined. In addition, both adult and adolescent offenders form part of this study.
