Theories and Practices of Chinese Community Correction System

Xin GUAN, Hanbin WANG


The emergence and development of community correction system adapts to the international trend of punishment from severity to tenderness, reflecting the concepts changed from “punitive retribution” to “correction and rehabilitation”. Taking into account the fundamental purpose of community correction system, we should establish a scientific evaluation system focusing on the effects of correction process upon the offenders returning to society. Currently there is a certain bias against the evaluation criteria of community correction system.
