Thinking about crime, sacrifice and community

Written Material

John McKnight (the founder of the Centre for Urban Affairs and Policy Research at Northwestern University, Illinois) wrote this paper about rehabilitation during which he remembers a visit to a correctional centre where he was told that the only thing they were sure of was that ageing of a person often brought about a decline in criminal activity. The paper discusses the various rehabilitation models and argues that these treatments don't work. While the author believes that these various rehabilitation models will continue to be used, he argues that it is 'communities' that work. Keywords: Community Development
