Description
Evan Davis will be visiting the University of Birmingham to deliver a lecture entitled, "Why London dominates and what the rest of the country should do about it?"

Crime, Policing and the Community

Date
07/11/2014
Location:
Room 104, The Library of Birmingham Centenary Square
Description
Crime and crime policy are at the heart of policy debate with the citizenry ranking crime policy as one of the top three things they care about in most surveys. Yet, public perception of crime does not often match actual crime figures which consistently show a downward trend while the majority of the public believe crime is going up. Researchers from the University together with police officers from the West Midlands police force will be discussing a number of issues in this ESRC Festival of Social Science event.
