This conference was aimed at policy-makers and decision-makers who develop and provide interventions for children who are in conflict with the law, or are at risk of offending or re-offending.
The conference focused on recent developments in theory and best practice in relation to interventions for these children and at reducing youth offending.
|Type of Research:||Conference, Symposium or Workshop Item (Lecture)|
|Additional Information (Publicly available):|
Theory, development, implementation & evaluation of Design Against Crime.
Definitions & conceptual frameworks for knowledge transfer of good practice in crime prevention.
Horizon scanning, incl. crime risk/ impact assessment.
Evolution, arms races, complexity & simulation applied to crime.
1.Principal Investigator, AHRC-funded project, with JDI/UCL, to design, implement and evaluate range of security products intended to reduce theft of customers' bags in bars. Based on this, developing concepts and language for describing/specifying security and security weaknesses in designed products, systems and environments.
2. Co-investigator, AHRC-funded project to develop more secure bike parking, including through guidance and standards. Based on my part of this work, recently completed, www.bikeoff.org/2009/01/05/final-report-wpa2-of-bike-off-2/ developing advanced frameworks for supporting crime risk analysis leading to design guidance. Currently discussing development of these frameworks in built environment and anti-terrorist contexts.
3. Currently writing book to elaborate key concepts, details and applications of 5Is framework, an advanced process model for crime prevention, and used in capture, synthesis and retrieval of good practice knowledge, supporting intelligenf replication and innovation. See www.designagainstcrime.com/web/crimeframeworks. Related to this, involved as partner in EU-funded project Beccaria on developing crime prevention training in EU and a range of informal national/international collaborations on knowledge management.
5. Developing new ways of thinking about Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design based on a tighter conceptual/theoretical framework than currently exists.
6. Investigating scope for using graphic/communications design to represent complexity in policy/practice systems such as, but not confined to, crime prevention.
