Abstract

© 2021 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.Dutch Caribbean-born women form one of the largest female ethnic minority groups in the Netherlands and are overrepresented in Dutch crime statistics. Experienced racism has been shown to weaken bonds to society and has been linked to (female) offending among African Americans. In the Netherlands and across the Caribbean research on experienced racism and offending is scarce. The current study examines the relationship between self-reported offending, weakened attachments and experienced racism among 328 Dutch Caribbean-born women. Results show that more experienced racism is related to both weakened attachments as to higher rates of self-reported offending across the life course.
