Punitivity in Germany

Helmut Kury, Max-Planck-Institute

This paper will present data regarding the same two groups of felons (those who are sentenced to prison and those who are sentenced to community programs). The distinctive characteristics of both groups will be closely examined, and their differences with one another will be noted and controlled in computing a ratio of punitivity for Germany, while controlling for gender, previous offending, and age.
