EPIC Research Document on Reintegration of Ex Prisoners 1998.

Fifteen years ago EPIC–Ex Prisoners Interpretative Centre, who represented UVF/RHC political ex prisoners conducted extensive research into the difficulties surrounding ex prisoners and their families.  The main body of research was carried out by Jim Crothers and Marion Green–research that took many months to compile.  The results were sometimes predictable–sometimes surprising–but indicated unambigiously that there were many problems to be faced in the reintegration of our prisoners–particularly thos who had spent many years behind bars.  This is the first of four pieces of documentary evidence that highlights the problems–as they were in 1998.  Many of those problems remain today and in lots of ways are exacerbated by the passage of time.
