"For decades, gangs have been emerging across the globe, disrupting citizen security, the rule of law, health and education, and local economies. The Caribbean, like many other regions, has a significant gang problem. Unfortunately, however, there has been limited academic attention given to the issue. Gangs in the Caribbean is intended to fill this gap by providing sound research conducted by leading Caribbean criminologists that encourages thoughtful and data-driven discussions between researchers and policymakers. The articles range from those that focus on the scope and nature of the Caribbean gang problem, with cutting-edge descriptions of both organized crime groups and street gangs and an analysis of how these differences impact the types of problems that communities face, to those that explore the policies and programmes designed and implemented to respond to Caribbean gangs, as well as what we have learned about such policies and programmes in terms of their effectiveness and unintended consequences. In doing so, Gangs in the Caribbean provides researchers, policymakers and students with a foundation of knowledge on a core issue confronting the Caribbean and provides these readers with a clear roadmap for responding to gangs in the future"--Page4 of cover
