Full Event Details:

Phantom Menace or Violent Criminals – Are Young People Criminal or Poor?
The media is often full of images and stories of anti-social youth, gang culture and ‘chavs’. Are these young people a social menace or the product of the society in which we live? This session will start by exploring popular media images of young people and explore youth criminality in relation to wider social problems. This interactive lecture explores the context and causes of youth crime and questions some of the approaches governments adopt to solve it. Should we rely on imprisonment? What can education do to prevent criminal behaviour? Is this a problem of poverty or individual behaviour? This inspiring session is led by Dr Lee Gregory (see below).

Institution Profile:

Birmingham has been challenging and developing great minds for more than a century. Characterised by a tradition of innovation, research at the University has broken new ground, pushed forward the boundaries of knowledge and made an impact on people’s lives.

We continue this tradition today and have ambitions for a future that will embed our work and recognition of the Birmingham name on the international stage.

Universities are never complete. They develop as new challenges and opportunities occur. At Birmingham we innovate, we push the frontiers of understanding; we ask new research questions, we turn theory through experiment into practice – because that’s what great universities do.
