Ethnicity

The State and Governance From Above and Below, Ethnicity and the Nation State

Kevin Stenson, from the London Metropolitan Universityand University of Kent, made a contribution to the 2012 Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology, in the category “Criminological Theory, Research and Education,” under the title “The State and Governance From Above and Below, Ethnicity and the Nation State”. Here is the abstract: Wacquant on urban marginality and statecraft highlights economic positioning. This paper develops an alternative perspective. Regimes of control create spaces enabling us to recognise agents of control and offenders and failures, disputes in control strategies that stimulate changes in control regimes, for the purposes of policy and practice. This approach argues that we need to go beyond a focus on the economic role of social actors and recognise the key role of ethnic and other cultural positionings, including sovereign nation-building, and multiple sites of governance `from above` and `from below`. `Crime` involves struggles between attempts to govern situations, territory, property and people `from above` by officialdom and `from below` by a range of individual and collective sites and agents of governance.
