Each year in the United States, more than 625,000 individuals are released from prison. Half will be back in prison within just three years. Many former prisoners who reoffend return home to their old communities, where the same family, friends, drugs, and criminal opportunities await them. In Home Free, David S. Kirk uses Hurricane Katrina as a natural experiment to examine whether residential relocation away from an old neighborhood can lead to desistance from crime. Drawing upon both quantitative and qualitative evidence and data from an experimental housing mobility program, he focuses on the lives of individuals released from Louisiana prisons soon after the hurricane, some who moved away from New Orleans and some who did not. Kirk further explores the impact of the Katrina-induced residential change, which provides a unique opportunity to investigate what happens when individuals move not just a short distance away from home, but to entirely different cities, counties, and social worlds. In a series of analyses, Kirk shows the impact that changes in structured daily activities and peer relationships, as well as opportunities for cognitive transformation can have to substantially reduce the likelihood of recidivism. Addressing one of the biggest challenges now facing the criminal justice system, Home Free offers a story of redemption. In light of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Kirk provides important insights into how the power of a fresh start can have considerable policy implications for reducing recidivism.

This publication is a result of a specific study conducted for the degree of Master of Philosophy in Development Geography in 2009 on the impacts of urban displacement and the consequent resettlement of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It argued residential relocation has negatively affected the socio-economic well-being of the urban poor people. This is manifested in many ways. First, relocation has resulted in the loss of families locational advantage'. Second, relocation has disrupted many home-based, small-scale income-generating businesses, is the domain of women. Third, relocation created a loss of community relationship and neighborhood support that revolve around community-based social (burial and church-based) and economic (saving) organizations. Yet, the impact of resettlement has variable outcome for the households in terms of the amount of compensation received, power relation with authorities and community participation in decision-making. It concludes urban renewal and resettlement policies must be consistent, well-designed and implemented in partnership with the involvement of people and their organizations, NGOs and the private sectors.

Land Use Transport Interaction

This book examines the interaction of land use and transport, specifically focusing on developing a better understanding of how the urban structure impacts on road congestion and travel costs. A land use and transport model has been developed using data from Riyadh and Melbourne. This book suggested an ideal urban form to reduce traffic congestion and trip length and improve accessibility levels. For both Melbourne and Riyadh the findings indicated that the best result in terms of travel efficiency, environment and accessibility can be achieved when urban growth is shifted towards decentralised structure (polycentric). To achieve polycentric approach, urban policy needs to be broadened to include activities relocated within a polycentric structure, as well as residential relocation balanced with activity locations and households in activity centers.

The elderly population is increasing all over the world. Elderly people have special needs, which are usually related to the change associated with the aging process. Relocation of the elderly person in residential homes is a stressful event that requires adjustment and coping. Mal-adaptation to either the aging process or the institutional environment leads to low self-esteem, depression, loneliness, and social isolation. Participation in social interaction reduces isolation and increases the level of self-esteem and acceptance. Recreational and leisure activities are recommended and used as a form of treatment to improve physical, mental, and emotional well being of the residents in the institution. This book should be useful for health team member, family caregiver, and community member.
