  • Technology-facilitated Domestic and Family Violence: Women’s
           Experiences
    • Authors: Douglas H; Harris B, Dragiewicz M.
      Pages: 551 - 570
      Abstract: The use of technology, including smartphones, cameras, Internet-connected devices, computers and platforms such as Facebook, is now an essential part of everyday life. Such technology is used to maintain social networks and carry out daily tasks. However, this technology can also be employed to facilitate domestic and family violence. Drawing on interviews undertaken with 55 domestic and family violence survivors in Brisbane, Australia, this article outlines survivors’ experiences of technology-facilitated domestic and family violence. The frequency and nature of abusive behaviours described by the women suggest this is a key form of abuse deserving more significant attention.

  • ‘I Am Talking About It Because I Want to Stop It’: Child Sexual Abuse
           and Sexual Violence Against Women in British South Asian Communities
    • Authors: Gill A; Harrison K.
      Pages: 511 - 529
      Abstract: This article explores the role of socio-cultural factors in violence against women and girls, focusing on child sexual abuse (CSA) and sexual violence (SV) in British South Asian communities. Using examples from 13 in-depth interviews with survivors, the researchers examine (1) how abusers gain access to their victims, (2) family and community responses and (3) the role of cultural factors in concealing CSA/SV. The interviews demonstrate that British South Asian survivors are extremely reluctant to disclose SV/CSA due to factors that other groups of victims usually do not face, including a general taboo about discussing sex and strong cultural norms around notions of shame. These findings are contextualized in relation to a larger study that also involved community focus groups and interviews with professionals in relevant fields. Moving forward, new culturally specific support pathways for British South Asian victims must be developed that take account of the role that victims and their communities must play if CSA and SV are to be effectively combatted.

  • Digital Coercive Control: Insights From Two Landmark Domestic Violence
           Studies
    • Authors: Harris B; Woodlock D.
      Pages: 530 - 550
      Abstract: This paper examines the use of digital technologies by domestic violence perpetrators, which we believe constitutes ‘digital coercive control’. We draw on two Australian research projects and emerging research to provide definitional, conceptual and theoretical frames for harmful and invasive behaviours enacted through technology. Additionally, we highlight how such abuse intersects with other forms of violence but has unique and distinct features, including spacelessness. Spatiality is central in our examination, and we consider the spaceless yet geographically situated experiences of and risk faced by victim/survivors in regional, rural and remote locations. In the interests of empowering and protecting women, we also problematize victim-blaming and burdens of ‘safety work’ frequently imposed on women encountering digital coercive control.

  • Weapon-carrying and the Reduction of Violent Harm
    • Authors: Brennan I.
      Pages: 571 - 593
      Abstract: Criminology has much to offer activities to reduce the harm of violent incidents—particularly by reducing weapon-carrying and use—but the discipline’s engagement with the harm reduction agenda has been limited. In addressing this, the article identifies risk factors for carrying a weapon by a young person in England and Wales. It demonstrates that this decision is influenced by individual-, interpersonal- and community-level factors and that weapon carriers can be distinguished from other respondents using relatively few characteristics. The study also shows that defensive factors, such as victimization and concerns about personal safety, are relevant to understanding weapon-carrying, but they are outweighed by criminogenic factors such as violence, neighbourhood disorder and, importantly, lack of trust in the police.

  • ‘Why Should I Trust You With My Money'’: Credible Commitments in
           the Informal Economy in China
    • Authors: Varese F; Wang P, Wong R.
      Pages: 594 - 613
      Abstract: This article explores theoretical and empirical features of informal value transfer systems, the illegal transfer of money between jurisdictions. It identifies the trust relationships between the actors involved and discusses four mechanisms used to signal trustworthiness. It then applies these theoretical considerations to China, where transferring money abroad cannot exceed a limited amount, and the process is costly. While most authors stress the importance of trust, we find that informal mechanisms of credible commitments, such as reputation, repeated interaction, hostage taking and sharing compromising information, are used. These strategies underpin an industry that transfers billions of dollars out of China every year. We found no evidence of use of violence or Mafia involvement. The article is based on field research, interviews with bankers and customers, and a review of official documents and news reports in Chinese and English.

  • Conceptual Similarities; Distinct Difference: Exploring ‘the
           Gang’ in Mainland China
    • Authors: Atkinson-Sheppard S; Hayward H.
      Pages: 614 - 633
      Abstract: This article discusses the ‘gang’ in Mainland China. By drawing on extensive observation, 99 qualitative interviews with criminal justice practitioners, NGO workers, academics, journalists, diplomats, community members and young people associated with gangs. The article considers the ways in which gangs are conceptualized in mainland China. The article uses the framework of ‘conceptual similarities and distinct difference’ to consider the ways in which Chinese gangs are similar to their counterparts around the world, but also how they differ. The article concludes by reflecting on the implications of this for law, legislation, policy and practice as well as global understandings of gangs and organized crime.

  • ‘Well-kent Faces’: Policing Persistent Offenders and the
           Possibilities for Desistance
    • Authors: Schinkel M; Atkinson C, Anderson S.
      Pages: 634 - 652
      Abstract: This article focuses on the policing of adult persistent offenders and its implications for desistance. It integrates the findings from two qualitative studies undertaken in Scotland on the experiences of those considered ‘persistent offenders’ and the police. The article’s contribution lies in its close analysis of how adult persistent offenders and the police interact, examining factors before, during and after their encounter. We show that the police’s enforcement focus is a significant obstacle to desistance, especially as enacted through intelligence-led policing and the lack of positive discretion towards ‘well-kent faces’. However, we also note that frustration with this approach is emerging within Scottish policing and argue for a relatively modest re-orientation of police practice towards a recognition of signals of desistance.

  • The Effects of Neighbourhood Offender Concentrations on the Number, Type
           and Location of Crimes Committed by Resident Offenders
    • Authors: Kearns A; Livingston M, Galster G, et al.
      Pages: 653 - 673
      Abstract: This paper examines whether criminals commit more crimes when living among other offenders. We estimate a fixed-effect, negative binomial model of individual reoffending using a quarterly panel data set across a decade for 693 neighbourhoods in Glasgow, which provides plausibly causal relationships. The concentration of recently active offenders has positive effects upon the subsequent number of property and violent crimes committed by resident offenders both inside and outside the neighbourhood. The concentration of young males also has a positive effect upon both crime types in both locations. Further understanding of peer influences by crime type and location, and of the effects of offender concentrations on processes of social control are required. The deconcentration of offenders is justified on social equity grounds.

  • Predictive Policing and the Politics of Patterns
    • Authors: Kaufmann M; Egbert S, Leese M.
      Pages: 674 - 692
      Abstract: Patterns are the epistemological core of predictive policing. With the move towards digital prediction tools, the authority of the pattern is rearticulated and reinforced in police work. Based on empirical research about predictive policing software and practices, this article puts the authority of patterns into perspective. Introducing four ideal-typical styles of pattern identification, we illustrate that patterns are not based on a singular logic, but on varying rationalities that give form to and formalize different understandings about crime. Yet, patterns render such different modes of reasoning about crime, and the way in which they feed back into policing cultures, opaque. Ultimately, this invites a stronger reflection about the political nature of patterns.

  • Drunk and Doubly Deviant' the Role of Gender and Intoxication in
           Sentencing Assault Offences
    • Authors: Lightowlers C.
      Pages: 693 - 717
      Abstract: Little is known about how alcohol intoxication impacts sentence outcomes. This study assesses whether intoxication differentially aggravates sentence outcomes for male and female defendants of assault offences. It does so by modelling the probability of custody and sentence severity using the Crown Court Sentencing Survey, including interaction terms to account for the gendered application of intoxication as a sentencing factor. The main finding is that the aggravation afforded to female defendants is twice than that afforded to males where intoxication in present and when controlling for relevant case characteristics. The study spotlights how cases of assault are processed through the criminal justice system and raises concerns with how gender equality is interpreted in sentencing practice with reference to alcohol intoxication.

  • Does the Crown Court Discriminate Against Muslim-named Offenders' a
           Novel Investigation Based on Text Mining Techniques
    • Authors: Pina-Sánchez J; Roberts J, Sferopoulos D.
      Pages: 718 - 736
      Abstract: Most research in sentencing discrimination in the United Kingdom has relied on aggregate analyses comparing disparities by ethnic group. These studies fail to consider differences in the individual characteristics of the cases processed. To circumvent the lack of official data, we scraped sentence records stored in a commercial website, from which a sample of 8,437 offenders sentenced to custody in the Crown Court from 2007 to 2017 was generated. Using the names of the offenders, we have been able to classify 8.6 per cent of our sample as having a traditional Muslim name. We find that Muslim-named offenders received sentences 9.8 per cent longer than the rest of the sample. However, this difference disappeared once we accounted for the type of offence and other key case characteristics.

  • Thinking Outside the ‘Murder Box’: Virtual Violence and
           Pro-social Action in Video Games
    • Authors: Denham J; Spokes M.
      Pages: 737 - 755
      Abstract: The ‘murder box’ is a virtual, lawless space where anything goes. According to Atkinson and Rodgers, when debauched and hedonistic experiences are combed-out of our everyday lives as society ascends a gradual arc of civility, voyeuristic, pleasure-seekers can live out their violent, sadistic fantasies. Atkinson and Rodgers apply this popular criminological metanarrative, rooted in Freud, Elias and Presdee, to violence in gaming. In the context of their game of choice (Grand Theft Auto V), we empirically test the idea that given limitless avenues for violence, people will necessarily act out violent desires. We find that player choices are mixed, considered and vary wildly from untamed subjective violence, to more pro-social behaviours. Our contribution is to argue for a more measured understanding of player–game interaction that accounts for the broader spectrum of Elias’ work, including those internalized self-controls directing individuals away from hedonistic decisions. At the same time, this contribution should be read as a response to the often absolutist theoretical positions adopted in cultural criminology more broadly that require closer empirical scrutiny.
