Cities, Crime and Disorder: A Dialogue between Urban Studies and Criminology
Date: 14-15 September 2016
A symposium led by Rowland Atkinson (University of Sheffield) and Gareth Millington (University of York)
The city has been central to the development of the field of criminology, it is both the site of the majority of many forms of crime and a type of social space that has generated many key insights into our understanding of why crime occurs and what the structural and social conditions and forces that shape the motivations of individuals and groups to pursue deviant careers or engage in harmful acts. The rationale for this symposium lies in our identification of the often disconnected ways in which criminology and urban studies have identified problems of crime, harm and disorder.
Working with the Police on Policing
