Systematic reviews thus aim to systematically combine the results from a number of studies in order to produce a more reliable overview of the opportunities and limitations associated with a given crime prevention strategy.
The Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå) has initiated the publication of a series of systematic reviews, in the context of which internationally renowned researchers are commissioned to perform the studies on our behalf. In this study, the authors have carried out a systematic review of the effects of drug treatment programs on crime which is based on 75 evaluations.
