Youth and violence

ICPC Lunch Seminar / May 4th 2007, Montreal (Canada)

Author(s) : International Centre for the Prevention of Crime



Abstract :

Increasingly public debate is centered on the theme of youth, violence and gangs. Recent riots in France and Australia received international attention. The phenomenon of youth gangs, whether in Quebec, USA, Latin America and other countries, whether real or perceived, can be a cause for much concern among the population. The issue of youth violence and youth gangs has also been subject to concern in Belgium. David Yansenne discussed the evolution of these issues in Belgium from past to present.

Speaker :

Mr YANSENNE has been in policing since 1977, spending most of his career in operational units. He is the Director of the Operations Unit for Brussels Police Service (Federal Police), Belgium. Most notably, he is in charge of the strategic development of the unit with the lieutenant-colonel, and is Head of the policing section for North Brussels.
