Elanie Rodermond conducts research as part of the Phoolan Devi Institute. Her PhD research focuses on (the mechanisms underlying) female desistance. Patterns of criminal behavior and backgrounds of female delinquents are examined (based on officially registered data), in order to identify what kind of women have desisted from crime. In addition, interviews with female offenders as well as with females who have desisted will be conducted to qualitatively examine the mechanisms underlying female desistance.
