Abstract

This paper presents four case studies of young people involved in street robbery. The paper analyses their street robbery ‘careers’, highlighting key pathways and turning points, into and out of street robbery and gang affiliation. The case studies are drawn from research undertaken by the author in a South East London borough in 2007.
