Crime and Violence in Context

The Crime and Violence in Context working group is targeted towards CFDR faculty affiliates and graduate students who are interested in linkages between population dynamics and crime and violence. Specifically, this working group considers not only how crime and violence change over the life course and across social contexts, but also the implications of criminal trajectories for union formation and parenting. Interested persons should contact the leader of this working group, Jorge Chavez at jchavez@bgsu.edu, to join.
