This chapter adopts labelling conflict theory to piece together the commonality shared by youth and foreign migrants groups to gain a wider perspective of the link between inequality and deviance for subordinate subcultural groups. Inequality and deviance is described as a process whereby these two subordinate subcultural groups enter into a position of inequality that then relates to deviant behaviour through participation as members of a subordinate subcultural group. This application of labelling conflict theory proceeds in a time-ordered sequence using the concepts of ‘entry’ and ‘participation’. Replication is the final sequence of labeling conflict theory pertaining to the persistence of labelling and conflict over time. Replication examines the continuation of the interrelationship between inequality and deviance for these two subordinate subcultural groups over time.
