About this blog:

I started this blog in October 2013 and it is related to a research project on class inequality and crime control that I am doing in 2014-2017.

On this blog I write about: social class and inequality, crime control and criminal justice, urban policy, criminalization, criminology, media coverage of inequality, crime and policy, and, occasionally, my own life.

Posts include:
* analyses of current developments in criminal, social and urban policy (esp. in the Netherlands),
* thoughts and comments on (academic) books, articles and things I see/read/hear in the media,
* my own everyday experiences with social class and crime (auto-ethnographic notes), and
* (preliminary) insights from my current research on how criminal justice deals with class differences.

Comments are very welcome (especially because I write to think, test ideas, formulate hypotheses and ask questions, so please do not consider these writings as definite conclusions).

New post once a month, sometimes in English, sometimes in Dutch, max. 1000 words.
