Building Little Safe and Civilized Communities: Community Crime Prevention with Chinese Characteristics?
Zhong, Lena Y. & Broadhurst, Roderic G. (2007) Building Little Safe and Civilized Communities: Community Crime Prevention with Chinese Characteristics? International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology, 51(1), pp. 52-67.
This paper describes a community crime prevention program in China, set against a background of rapid economic development, large internal population migration and increasing crime rates. Traditional social control in China has been transformed in order to adapt to the new reform era yet some mechanisms remain intact. Crime prevention measures and strategies resemble those adopted in the West, but the differences, constituting the so-called ‘Chinese characteristics’ with community crime prevention are significant
