This group of essays attempts to throw light on the complex interaction of crime, justice, social exclusion and community cohesion and how they affect people's lives. A striking feature of socially excluded communities is their tendency to display higher-than-average crime rates with all that entails in terms of deterring investors, reducing employment opportunities and further isolating the community. This pamphlet comprises a series of specially commissioned essays by experts in a wide range of fields associated with crime, social exclusion and community building.
