Social Exclusion, Crime and Drugs

Social Exclusion, Crime and Drugs This article explores the relationship between social exclusion, drugs and crime. It begins with a discussion of the social and economic factors which shape the lives of the excluded and the linkages with these and the drugs/crime 'nexus'. The traumatic consequences of these relationships are then explored through discussion of one socially excluded place (a housing estate in the North East of England) where crime and drug abuse thrived, and where the agencies who sought to tackle it felt frustrated and powerless to overcome it. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png "Drugs: Education, Prevention & Policy" Taylor & Francis

Abstract

This article explores the relationship between social exclusion, drugs and crime. It begins with a discussion of the social and economic factors which shape the lives of the excluded and the linkages with these and the drugs/crime 'nexus'. The traumatic consequences of these relationships are then explored through discussion of one socially excluded place (a housing estate in the North East of England) where crime and drug abuse thrived, and where the agencies who sought to tackle it felt frustrated and powerless to overcome it.
