Couverture de l’ouvrage Tough Choices : Risk, Security and the Criminalization of Drug Policy
In recent years, British drug policy has undergone a transformation: tackling 'drug-driven' crime through criminal justice interventions has arguably become the central priority and focus. The 'criminal justice turn', as the authors refer to current UK drugs policy, is based on three simple and linked assumptions: drug-driven property crime is a major driver of local area crime rates, especially in deprived neighbourhoods
Toby Seddon is a Professor in the School of Law at the University of Manchester and a co-founder of the research group ManReg (The Manchester Centre for Regulation, Governance & Security). He has been involved in drugs research for nearly 20 years and has a particular interest in developing new regulatory perspectives on drug policy. Lisa Williams is a Lecturer in Criminology in the School of Law at the University of Manchester. Her principal interests are in the area of recreational drug use and she is co-author of the revised edition of the landmark text Illegal Leisure Revisited (Routledge, 2011). Her monograph Changing Lives, Changing Drug Journeys (Routledge, 2012) examines drug-taking in the context of the life-course. Robert Ralphs is a Senior Lecturer in Criminology in the Department of Sociology at Manchester Metropolitan University. He has diverse research interests, including drug use, youth gangs and youth crime. He is co-author of a forthcoming book based on a major ethnographic study of youth gangs (Youth Gangs in an English City, Routledge).
