General

Anke Ramakers is Assistant Professor of Criminology at the Department of Criminology at Leiden University. She is also a member of the Board of Exams of the Law Faculty.

Research

Anke is a criminologist, with a background in sociology and quantitative research methods. Her research interests include offender employment, consequences of imprisonment, and consequences of criminal justice and social policies. Her research falls within the research program Criminal Justice: Legitimacy, Accountability, and Effectivity of the Institute of Criminal Law and Criminology, more specifically their research on Imprisonment.

Her doctoral thesis examined men’s labor market experiences before and shortly after imprisonment (Barred from employment? A study of labor market prospects before and after imprisonment). In 2017, Anke was awarded a VENI grant by the Dutch research Council (NWO) for the research In a job, out of trouble? Causes of joblessness after imprisonment and the consequences of employment outcomes for post-release reoffending. In this project she continues working with (inter)national scholars on research questions regarding the labor market perspectives of offenders. Prior re-entry research focused on (the effect of imprisonment on) post-release outcomes and found that ex-prisoners fare badly in society. In order to be able to intervene, it is necessary to not only measure post-release outcomes, but explain why many ex-prisoners fail to (re)integrate in society. This project uses a theory-driven approach and unique access to rich longitudinal datasets to answer these why-questions. The findings help to develop evidence-based policy responses to the re-integration problems of high-risk groups.

Anke also co-supervises Ph.D student Marco Stam, on the project “The effects of welfare reforms and imprisonment on the financial wellbeing and criminal behavior of ex-prisoners”, a collaboration between the Economics Department (Reform of Social Legislation) and the Criminology Department (Criminal Justice: Legitimacy, Accountability, and Effectivity).
