Preventing Crime Through Work and Wages: The Impact of the Community Work Programme

The article offers an analysis of the potential impact of the Community Work Programme (CWP), a public employment initiative, on crime and violence. The CWP may have an impact on crime and violence through a number of different 'pathways', one of which is through wages provided to the participants. This paper investigates this pathway, looking in particular at its gendered dynamics.
