Episode 3: Young People at Risk of Social Exclusion

Over the past 30 years, the notion of interventions to mitigate risky behaviour in young people has forged some formidable cottage industries and academic research, youth development strategies and state policies added to this is the emergence of policy connections between intervention facilities to deal with youth at risk and the introduction of school policing. But what are the beliefs and values in society that underscore the othering of young people through policing schools located in socio economically distressed communities? 

In this episode Helga Jansen-Daugbjerg talks to high school educator and doctoral candidate in sociology, Abdulhakim Moalimishak from Carlton University in Ottawa, Canada and education activist and doctoral candidate in the UCT School of Education Ashley Visagie.
