This study aims to investigate the underlying premises of UK neighbourhood crime policies and to study the construction of territories of control and the importance of boundaries in the neighbourhood governance of crime and disorder.Two areas were chosen from both Glasgow and Edinburgh (one affluent and one deprived from each).
Topics covered in the individual and focus group interviews include crime, fear of crime, perceptions of neighbourhood and attitudes towards residents of neighbouring areas and others from 'outside' the immediate community, social deprivation, social and community cohesion, establishment of Neighbourhood Watch groups and other crime prevention and community organisations, and attitudes towards community policing.
