Youth Gangs: Experience from a Pilot Survey
Salagaev, A. L.; Shashkin, A. V.
Russian Education and Society, v47 n12 p61-75 Dec 2005
The present article is based on the results of an expert survey and a survey of young people in the schools of two Russian cities, Moscow and Kazan (2003). The study focused on making the research problem more explicit and testing the set of instruments, which was developed with the authors' participation in the framework of the Eurogang research program and was designed to enable comparison with the findings of similar studies in Europe and the United States. The authors present their analysis of delinquent gangs, including their characteristics and differences between gangs per se and the traditional neighborhood youth groups. (Contains 1 note.)
