Youth Marginality in Britain

Seán F Murphy

Policy Press

Seán F. Murphy examines the contemporary issues surrounding the policing of disadvantaged communities. Specifically looking at the discriminatory practice of ‘Stop and Search’ methods of policing. He argues that for young people, rights become qualified or suspended during encounters with the police. He theorises the condition of ‘advanced marginality’, through the term [b]othered youth within a wider institutional mistrust of youth. Critically assessing how the discretionary powers, through the framing of suspects, can reproduce inequalities, injustice and resentment. He argues that [b] othering, resistance and marginalisation of disadvantaged youth in poor communities result in a loss of legitimacy and the tensions emerging from over-policing.
