Catch22 Dawes Unit – Emily Setty (2014) Gangs in Prison: The Nature and Impact of Gang Involvement among Prisoners

The concept of the ‘prison gang’ brings to mind highly structured American super-gangs, nurtured in prisons with low surveillance levels and a high level of prisoner control, bearing no comparison to anything emerging in the United Kingdom (UK). It has not been until relatively recently that researchers and policy-makers in the UK have started asking questions and attending to the existence and impact of gangs in custody and the relationship between these and associations and collectives in the community.

Research conducted by the Catch22 Dawes Unit. The Catch22Dawes Unit brings together research, policy and practice in order to understand how to reduce the harm caused by gangs and gang-related crime. For more information please follow the link http://www.catch-22.org.uk/expertise/gangs/
