Participants' reflections on the workshops

""The workshop has combined such rich, cross-disciplinary research""

Suzette Haughton (UWI Mona) reviewing the Jamaica workshop, 2017

""A lively, engaged session of gathered practitioners and academic researchers contested both the current policy and academic research to address embedded organised crime.""

David Howard (University of Oxford) reviewing the roundtable discussion ‘Policy approaches to organised crime’, Jamaica workshop, 2017

""Fascinating panel. A recurring theme (in this panel and in others): the role of the artist, the extent of social responsibility and role re influencing policy making. […]This for me was the most stimulating panel to date.""

Kim Robinson-Walcott (UWI Mona) reviewing the artists’ discussion panel ‘Visualising “criminal” spaces and bodies’, Jamaica workshop, 2017

""The workshop has been entirely fulfilling and intellectually stimulating. It has been responsible for taking my work in new directions I had not anticipated. The emphasis on state crime and a history of black suppression are areas which have been sharpened.""

Sonjah Stanley Niaah (UWI Mona), Trinidad workshop, 2018

""Testimony from participants from the community and the impact of interventions [that] engage outside the frame of gang violence. Frank engagement and positive feedback on the path to sound transformation was a very welcome change to the session""
