EUCPN Webinar: Youth Street Gangs
A EUCPN Toolbox developed on behalf of the French Presidency will delve into the prevention of gang violence. Youth street gangs, a predominantly (sub-)urban phenomenon, constitute a particular type of semi-organised crime. While members may be involved in other criminal activities, they are characterised by their allegiance to a geographically defined group (the gang) and their rivalry towards other such groups, which may lead to violence.
The webinar (and the upcoming toolbox) investigates the phenomenon as it presents in the EU and zooms in on what can be done to prevent young people become gang members.
The webinar will take place on Tuesday 28 June 2022 between 14:00 - 15:00 CET.
Participation is free but registration is mandatory. The access link will be sent prior to the webinar.
