Research context

Draft Research Questions

How do the future challenges for policing as described in the 2020 'Policing Vision 2025' affect partnership working within community policing?

Can we identity and describe any institutional logics at play in this environment, in particular around exploitation and serious youth violence work?

Can we generate and describe any 'ideal types' (archetypes) that help describe and understand this environment?

How do these logics or ideal types impact on how actors and organisations cope with the work in this environment, with a focus on partnership working?

How will these logics or ideal types serve policing in rising to the future challenges for policing?

Research methodology

A case study utilising mixed methods – a combination of narrative analysis, focus groups and interviews.
