This book is a study of the response that the police take to modern urban riots. It takes a principally police perspective on the lead-up to a riot, the police response, and the evaluation of the police response. The book is based on the development and analysis of four extensive case study riots: France , London , Ferguson , and Baltimore The methodological approach to the case studies is comparative and includes an interactive framework that incorporates a number of key variables. These variables examine how each riot began, how they developed, the response strategies and tactics used by the police, and how the riots eventually ended.
Behind the riots: what young people think about the 2011 summer unrest
Modelling London riots | Research Impact - UCL – University College London
F ollowing David Cameron's call for a sociological analysis of the riots "when the dust settles", sociologists from universities around the UK have come together to provide an initial analysis of the riots. The last six areas are in London. Three weeks after the action, the articles provide important insights into the causes, motivations, actions and consequences of the disturbances. Through interviews with young people, they start to illustrate much-needed local pictures of what happened in different places and why. Following the riots, the vast majority of defendants that came before magistrates' courts were young people under The articles show that, if we are to understand the riots, it is young people not politicians we should be listening to.
The August riots in England study
UCL researchers created two projects to engage the public with their mathematical modelling of the London riots of a short film and a visualisation game. The film sparked public debate and received widespread coverage, helping raise awareness of the social issues underlying the riots. In summer , London experienced the worst period of sustained rioting, violence, looting and arson seen in the UK for over 20 years. UCL researchers collaborated with the Metropolitan Police Service to investigate the causes of the riots, with the aim of informing policing strategies for similar events in the future. By analysing data on all the arrests made in connection with the riots, including the home and offence location of each suspect, the researchers highlighted factors such as deprivation, transport and the role that retail centres played in the events.
