The Insecurity State

This chapter reviews the development of New Labour's anti-social behaviour policy in the context of its wider criminal justice and social policies. It argues that the Anti-Social Behaviour Order' imposition of conditional citizenship, in which rights are made contingent on the performance of duties, was central to policy discussion and, secondly, that these duties extended to security questions because the representative citizen was constructed as weak and vulnerable and in need of reassurance.

Keywords:   anti-social behaviour policy, respect agenda, reassurance policing, conditional citizenship, contractual governance, active citizenship, vulnerability
