Risk Society: Social Exclusion and the re-Integration of Offenders

Linda B. Deutschmann, University College of the Cariboo

This paper focuses on resistance to the inclusion/integration of marginalized people, particularly ex-offenders and the disreputable poor. The analysis draws on traditions of critical criminology, in particular the ideas of Henry/Milovanovic (replacement discourse) and J. Young (exclusive society), but also the critical sociology of A. Giddens and U. Beck (risk society). Methodologically, this work breaks ground in the use of GIS mapping of sited social facilities and community attitudes.
