Personal information

Anne-Marie Slotboom

I graduated from Leiden University after finishing a master in developmental psychology. I finished my PhD on a large scale cross-cultural study of childhood precursors of adult personality structure. Between 2001 and 2004 I worked as a researcher at the Netherlands Institute for the Study of Crime and Law Enforcement (NSCR), where I studied the effects of interventions on persistent offenders and the implementation of formal and informal interventions in secondary schools. I am currently an Associate Professor at the Criminal Law and Criminology Department of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. My main publications have been focused on prison conditions in women’s prisons, women’s prison experiences, and girls in the juvenile justice system. Furthermore, I coordinated a study for the Dutch ministry of Justice on the need for gender specific interventions. My current research interest is concentrated on pathways to female imprisonment, female desistance and juvenile delinquents treated in outpatient clinics. Together with Machteld Hoeve, Menno Ezinga and Peer van der Helm I published a Dutch state of the art book on female delinquency (Criminele meisjes en vrouwen: Achtergronden en aanpak, 2012).

I teach courses in theoretical criminology, developmental and lifecourse criminology and female delinquency. The course 'Gender, Crime and Justice' is the only course in the Criminology program at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam which specify focusses on the role of both men and women in the justice system, their pathways to crime and the process of desistance and re-entry in society.
