Youth Gang Violence

Gang membership is an international issue which has impacted rates of crime around the world. Whilst similar organisations of gangs exist across the globe, each formation has its own culture and traditions that permeate the very community in which the gang is located.

This project seeks to undergo a systematic review of the predictors of participation and the effectiveness of interventions to reduce involvement.
