SRA Cymru Seminar
“Problem-Solving for Safer Communities in Wales: The Role of Social Science”
- Professor Gordon Hughes
- Adam Edwards (Centre for Crime, Law and Justice, School of Social Sciences, Cardiff University)
- Stephen Carr (Community Safety Manager, Cardiff)
Time: 15:30-17.30 Thursday 28th October 2010
Place: The Cinema, Welsh Assembly Government, Cathays Park,
This seminar is part of a series of 'trialogues' which members of the Cardiff Centre for Crime, Law and Justice in partnership with the newly formed Welsh Centre for Crime and Social Justice have initiated across the too often separate communities of practitioners, policy makers and academic researchers in criminology across Wales.
The focus of this seminar is on the challenges associated with developing evidence-based, problem-solving strategies in community safety and multi-agency policing. The initial basis for the discussion will be the recent social scientific research undertaken by Professor Gordon Hughes, Adam Edwards and others for the Welsh Assembly Government on the Safer Communities fund, alongside the experience of ‘doing' community safety in Wales.
The seminar will also seek to both raise and answer urgent questions regarding the fate of multi-agency partnership working in Wales in the wake of the unprecedented cuts in public spending scheduled for October 2010 and in the context, inter alia, of the Home Office's recent consultation paper, Policing in the 21st century: Re-connecting the police and the people.
