Crime control as waste management

Professor Philip Stenning, Criminology, delivered a lecture titled "There is no away: crime control as waste management", on Tuesday, as part of Keele's Inaugural Lecture series for 2007/08.

In this lecture Professor Stenning drew parallels between the way we respond to the problems of crime and waste, both of which have grown significantly during the last 50 years. In particular, he considered the respective roles of the state and civil society, and of prevention and ex post facto responses, in addressing both problems.

He concluded that criminologists and criminal justice policy-makers may be able to learn some useful lessons from environmentalists, but need to take more account of some major social developments which affect the efficacy of our responses to problems of crime and disorder.

The last lectures in the series is: Tuesday, 20 May, Professor Richard Pugh, Social Work, "Contested territory: Social work and social context".
