Social Identity & Urban Criminology

There are four elements to a crime, a law, an offender, a target or victim and a place. When these four elements come together, a crime has been committed. A crime cannot take place without these four elements. There must be a law for an offender to violate; there must a target or a victim for the offender to prey on, and their must a place for this to happen. Environmental criminology is the examination of this fourth element, the place. This paper studies crime, criminality and victimisation as they relate to particular places, and to the way an individual’s social identity shape their activities spatially, and in so doing are in turn influenced by place-based or spatial factors
