Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Summary: The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the literature on noncompliance
and breach processes by presenting some of the findings from a recent pilot study on the
nature of the breach process that follows non-compliance with a community service order in
Ireland. The Irish pilot study emerged from a broader comparative study of breach processes
undertaken by a group of international scholars as part of the COST Action SI 1106 on
Offender Supervision in Europe.The paper begins by examining the literature on noncompliance in the field of offender supervision and then introduces the comparative study on
breach processes before providing a detailed description of the Irish pilot study. The
remaining sections examine the relevance of the findings from both a national and a
comparative perspective.
