Kui kriminoloogia kirjanduses ilmub kaastoimepanijatest ikka uuringuid, siis politseikirjanduses (kui neid kahte analüütiliselt eristada) ei ole nö kaas-küsimus palju tähelepanu saanud. Tõsi, ka siinviidatu on kriminoloogia ajakirjast, kuid siiski märkimisväärse policing rõhutusega.

Tekst võiks huvi pakkuda nii politseinikele, poliitikakujundajatele aga ka näiteks haridustöötajatele.

Konteksiks:

However, there has been practically no research exploring how co-offenders might harness the pro-social dimensions of their criminal pursuits in aid of co-desistance (but see Deane et al. 2007; Weaver 2016).

Autorid fokuseerivad:

Specifically, we examine a new approach for addressing high-rate serious repeat offending among a group of young Aboriginal 1males in South Australia.

Kirjandusülevaate huvilistele:

In what follows, we do four things. First, we define the concept of co-desistance and review the relevant literature in order to distinguish the YN approach from other ways of producing desistance.

Keskne küsimus:

A key question is: Just as pathways into crime are often group-based (involving shared social settings and learned neutralizations), might some pathways out of crime also be achieved in groups?

Lugemishuvi suurendamiseks:

In such light, it is essential that desistance theory, as well as emergent co-desistance theory (insofar as these can be called ‘theories’), continue to promote a nuanced conception of the so-called ‘individual’ (or ‘the subject’) (see Halsey 2006). The idea of either a fully agentic or structurally trapped actor is anathema to the complexities of how (young) people invent, take on, resist and reinvent notions of the self (Farrall et al. 2011).
