An expert in criminology, David Faulkner reflects on crime, citizenship, and public service. He claims that people are increasingly realizing that responsibility for dealing with anti-social behavior by young people lies with more than the police, teachers, or parents (all of whom are usually deemed to be failing in their responsibility). Rather, responsibility is shared by statutory services or institutions of the state, and ordinary citizens. Moreover, there is increased awareness that services and citizens can work together to achieve results that neither alone could achieve. Faulkner explores these developments, as well as a growing dialogue about the character of British society, the nature of citizenship, and the quality of the country’s governance and democracy.
