Associate Professor Tamari Kitossa - Brock University (Ontario)
Associate Professor Tracey McIntosh - Auckland University
Dr Tara McGee - Griffith University (Brisbane)
Dr Mike Ruguski - independent researcher (Wellington).
In a welcome departure from the norm for academic events the convenor, Dr Antje Deckert has invited people who work with/in communities and 'hard to reach' groups to talk about issues with crime control, including:
Harry Tam, Edge TeWhaiti and Michael Osborne, and
Holly Mortimore and Vicki Letele.
The speakers will cover a range of topics from obstacles to desistance from offending, strategies for engaging with 'hard to reach communities' such as gangs and their whanau (families), and effective responses to reducing crime.
See you there.
