Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Since the 1980s, electronic monitoring has been successfully introduced in a number of countries worldwide. Much of the literature on electronic monitoring has been produced by officials and researchers directly involved in the implementation of experimental electronic monitoring programmes and has been subject to little critical scrutiny. This book addresses the broader factors in electronic monitoring's development. Drawing on recent developments in the sociology of punishment and crime control, this book will develop a critical criminological perspective on electronic monitoring in selective countries around the world.
