After many years of decline,reported levels of youth violence and gang culture in Britain began to increase again in 2014 and have continued to do so since, particularly in England and Wales.These issues have arisen against the backdrop of deindustrialisation and as a result of a lack of local community investment, as well as the continuing issues associated with the profiling and criminalisation of young working-class males, and particularly those from ethnic minority communities.This document reviews contemporary literature on gang culture and details the most pertinent findings, in order to brief the Cumberland Lodge conference on ‘Understanding and Policing Gangs’ in June 2019.
