Do street gang injunctions really work in the OC? What are the consequences of mass incarceration on families and children - and is the incarceration of a father always bad for families? What are some of the key best practices in teaching gang intervention? UCI social scientists will address these questions and more in the final panel discussion of the three-part 2013-14 Social Sciences Expert Series.
