Perceived disorder and its consequences
Perceived disorder and its consequences disorder signals’ across trial areas

“The concept of neighbourhood disorder once again has assumed priority in the social sciences”

(Sampson & Raudenbush 2004:314).

“...the grounds on which perceptions of disorder are formed are contextually shaped by social conditions that go well beyond the usual signs of observed disorder and poverty, starting a process that moulds reputations, reinforces stigma, and influences the future trajectory of an area.

(Sampson, 2012:123)

Concluding thoughts
Concluding thoughts... The Importance of Perceived Disorder

  • Incivilities can no longer be denied a central role within criminology

  • Perceptions (of disorder), even if inaccurate can have a significant impact on local social order

  • Perceived disorder influences individual and corporate decisions which in turn shape the long-term trajectories of neighbourhoods.
