2012 Programme: After the Riots

Can we take the pulse of the nation in 2012? Can we tell now just what was to blame for last year’s riots? Poverty? Greed? Racist policing? Criminality? Anomie? Was it the fault of the parents, a break down in their authority? Or do yoof today just choose not to knuckle down? Say no to everything on offer? Or will a new sense of community arise from the ashes?

STRAND CONVENORS: Neil Davenport and Peter Smith.

INTRODUCED BY: Neil Davenport, writer; head of sociology, JFS Sixth Form Centre.
