New developments and implications for understanding the victimization of gang members.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Despite a long line of research establishing a connection between gang membership and delinquent or criminal behavior, less is known about gang members' exposure to victimization. Among the few published studies that have recently investigated the gang-victimization link, findings are mixed and our understanding of this relationship remains unclear. This study offers a synthesis of the emerging gang-victimization literature by highlighting methodological and theoretical advancements and limitations within the field. Specific recommendations are presented to guide future research.
