HoodedCriminalSmallJust in case anyone’s interested, I did a very short live interview for BBC Radio WM this morning about the perceived relationship between gangs and radicalisation. It’s now available to listen to by clicking here (the interview starts at around 2 hours and 8 minutes in).

Maybe more interesting is an old article I had published back in 2006 titled, “(Muslim) Boyz-N-The-Hood” for the now defunct ISIM Review. Based in the Netherlands, the article focused on ‘The Muslim Boys’ gang in south east London. To read the article, click here.

Be warned though, it was written back in the days when I was trying too hard to be an ‘academic’, using too many big words and lots of unintelligible language. Enjoy – if you can !!!
