  • PLS Title Health and well-being of children placed in kinship care is better than that of children in foster care
  • PLS Description This Campbell systematic review examines whether kinship care is more effective than foster care in ensuring the safety, permanency and wellbeing of children removed from their home for maltreatment. The review summarizes findings from 102 studies involving 666,615 children. 71 of these studies were included in meta-analyses.
  • Title Kinship care for the safety, permanency and well-being of children removed from the home for maltreatment
  • Spanish PLS La salud y bienestar de los niños colocados al cuidado de parientes es mayor en comparación con la de los niños colocados al cuidado de hogares temporales
  • Spanish PLS Description La colocación de niños al cuidado de parientes – es decir la colocación de niños al cuidado de una familia que tiene lazos de parentesco con un determinado niño – se utiliza cada vez más en muchos países occidentales como una alternativa a la colocación de niños que han sido maltratados en entornos de residencias institucionales o con familias que no tienen vínculos de parentesco con dichos niños y que brindan servicios de cuidado temporal. Esta revisión examina el efecto del cuidado brindado por parientes en comparación con el cuidado brindado por hogares temporales en cuanto a la seguridad, permanencia y bienestar de los niños retirados de sus hogares por razones de maltrato. Los resultados incluyen la salud conductual, la salud mental, la estabilidad y permanencia en la colocación, el nivel educativo alcanzado, las relaciones familiares, la utilización de los servicios y el re-abuso.
  • Norwegian PLS Barn som er plassert i slektsfosterhjem har bedre helse og velferd enn barn plassert i ordinære fosterhjem
  • Norwegian PLS Description Plassering av barn i slektsfosterhjem brukes i økende grad i mange vestlige land som et alternativ til å plassere barn som har blitt mishandlet, på institusjon eller hos fosterfamilier uten slektstilknytning. Denne oversikten undersøker effekten av barns oppvekst i slektsfosterhjem sammenlignet med ordinære fosterhjem når det gjelder å ivareta barnas trygghet, stabilitet i hjemmet og generell velferd for barn som har blitt tatt bort fra hjemmet sitt på grunn av mishandling. Utfallene omfatter barnas atferdsmessige helse, mentale helse, plasseringsstabilitet, skoleprestasjoner, familierelasjoner, tjenestebruk og ny mishandling.
  • French PLS La santé et le bien-être des enfants placés chez un parent de la famille sont meilleurs que ceux des enfants placés en famille d’accueil
  • French PLS Description La santé comportementale et mentale ainsi que le bien-être des enfants placés chez un membre de la famille sont meilleurs que ceux des enfants placés en famille d’accueil. Les enfants vivant chez un parent connaissent moins de perturbations dans leur placement et moins d’incidents liés à la maltraitance institutionnelle. La probabilité que la tutelle soit accordée à un parent de la famille est plus élevée pour les enfants placés chez un parent que pour les enfants placés en famille d’accueil. Il n’y a aucune différence entre le placement de l’enfant chez un parent ou en famille d’accueil sur les taux de retour chez les parents biologiques, la durée du placement, le niveau d’instruction de l’enfant, les liens familiaux ou encore le degré de développement et l’utilisation des services médicaux. Cependant, les enfants placés en famille d’accueil sont plus susceptibles d’utiliser les services de santé mentale et d’être adoptés, supprimant ainsi toute implication des parents biologiques dans leur éducation.

  • PLS Title Land property rights interventions improve agricultural productivity and investment in Latin America and Asia, but less in Africa
  • PLS Description Land property rights interventions improve agricultural productivity and investment in Latin America and Asia, but less in AfricaFarmers who have secure land rights can invest in long-term improvements to their farms without worrying that their land will be confiscated. Formalizing property rights may improve agricultural productivity, increase farmer income and improve access to credit. The most common approach to strengthening land rights in Latin America and Asia is to convert communal or non-demarcated rural land to freehold title, then register rights to the land in an official registry. In Africa, the more common approach is to demarcate and register existing customary rights. Underlying ownership remains with the state, and land sales are often restricted. This review examines the evidence on the impacts of such interventions on agricultural and livelihood outcomes in rural areas in low and middle-income countries.

  • PLS Title Face-to-face Restorative Justice conferences are cost-effective in reducing reoffending and increasing victim satisfaction
  • PLS Description Face-to-face Restorative Justice Conferences (RJCs) between offenders and victims have a modest but highly cost-effective impact on reoffending. Victim's satisfaction with the handling of their cases is consistently higher among those who attend RJCs, compared to those dealt with solely by standard criminal justice processes, usually the courts.
  • Title Restorative justice conferencing (RJC) using face-to-face meetings of offenders and victims: effects on offender recidivism and victim satisfaction
  • Spanish PLS Las reuniones de justicia restaurativa en persona son eficaces en función de los costos para reducir la reincidencia y aumentar la satisfacción de las víctimas
  • Spanish PLS Description Los enfoques de justicia restaurativa intentan más bien reparar los daños causados por un crimen, en vez de perjudicar al delincuente. Esta revisión incluye las RJR en persona en las cuales el delincuente se reúne con las víctimas del crimen para discutir el delito y sus consecuencias. Durante las RJR en persona, los participantes describen su conexión con el crimen, las víctimas describen el daño que se les causó, y todos -incluyendo al delincuente- hablan sobre cómo se podría reparar el daño. Esta revisión compara los efectos de las Reuniones de Justicia Restaurativa en persona, con la justicia penal estándar por sí sola, sobre (a) reincidencia en un período de dos años después de la resolución del caso y (b) medidas de satisfacción de la víctima.
