Summary This thesis provides insight into the operation and understanding of legislation targeting dangerous sexual offenders. This research identified that these offenders are largely a high risk recidivist population, where the legislation used by Judges lacks clarity in the criteria to determine dangerousness and that professionals working with sexual offenders differ in their understanding of risk and dangerousness.
