Gangs and global exchange: confronting the Glasgow gang complex
Publication that reports on the contributions to a one-day conference held in Glasgow on the 2 December 2010.
The conference sought to explore the issues outlined above by examining the past, present and future of the gang phenomenon in the city of Glasgow, through dialogue between relevant academic, community, media, policy, and practitioner audiences. The seminar brought together cutting edge criminological, sociological and historical research on the development of the gang phenomenon in Glasgow alongside key figures in public, media, policy and practitioner communities; in an effort to comprehend the competing demands of these diverse groups, and work towards more informed, evidence-based collaborations.
These local responses were located within the global exchange of knowledge on the ‘gang complex’ through dialogue with international experts.
