The Local Governance of Crime: Appeals to Community and Partnerships

Adam Crawford

Oxford University Press

This chapter takes an avowedly jaundiced view of some of the path-dependent possible implications of recent developments in the governance of crime and appeals to ‘community’. Particular concern is given to issues of social justice and responsibility. It is also concerned with the ‘spirals of ghettoization’. It begins with a discussion of shifts in responsibility heralded by recent developments and their possible implications both for the commodification of security and the evaluation of ‘success’ and ‘failure’ in crime-control policy. The presented argument can contribute to the awareness of the social hazards of appeals to ‘community’ and ‘partnerships’.

Keywords:   local justice, social justice, crime, community, responsibility, crime-control policy, partnerships
