UPSI Hosts Expert Seminar on the Co-Production of Social Control

Co-production is an increasingly important concept for describing how people from different backgrounds work together to produce a solution to a shared problem. Last week UPSI brought together experts from across the academy, government departments, the police, voluntary sector and industry to examine the state-of-the-art in relation to the co-production of social control. The seminar was sponsored by the ESRC and AHRC as part of their 'Connected Communities' programme. 

Funding Success!

UPSI secures three grants from the Economic and Social Research Council. In one of these grants UPSI will be conducting work on "Community Networks and Mobilisation in Delivering Neighbourhood Security: Exploring Concepts of 'Horizontal' and 'Vertical' Co-Production." This research will help to develop thinking about how the big society agenda can be applied to community safety and policing.
