Presentation Transcript


1. Crime and the Everyday:A challenge to policy and practice

2. The ‘myth’ of youth crime Stable to declining levels of youth crime The emergence of ‘anti-social behaviour’ The (mis) Representation of youth crime – the role of politics and the media

3. Policy assumptions and approaches to tackling the ‘youth crime problem’ ‘Criminal’ and ‘none criminal’ pathways Crime as individual responsibility / activity a deficit model Bifurcation of policy: ‘Popular punitiveness’ verses early intervention ‘Riskfactorology’ and expanding assessment culture Moving the young from anti social to pro-social trajectories

4.

5. Managing Crime in the everyday Fluid and changing pathways – in, out and back in again Managing difference – crime and social inclusion Crime and the mundane – finding pleasure in difficult lives Strategies for avoiding criminal careers

6. The challenge to policy Lack of attention to – victims and witness False dichotomy ‘criminal and none criminal’ – problems with notion of pathways? Lack of recognition of resilience and young people’s efforts to manage crime Problems with individualistic – risk factor model Crime as social activity Managing risk rather than risk factors Risk and protection – false dichotomy
