Call for papers for a session on
“Network perspectives on adolescent peers and delinquency”

at the 33rd Sunbelt Conference, May 21-26 2013 in Hamburg, Germany

Session organizers:
Jacob T.N. Young, School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Arizona State University (USA)
Dominik Gerstner, Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal, Freiburg (GER)

We are seeking two contributions to a panel focusing on the role of peers and friends in relation to adolescent crime, delinquency, or substance use. Recent research demonstrates the potential of social network analysis for delinquency research, and the panel intends to present current advances in this field from both sides of the Atlantic.

If you are interested in joining this panel please contact us via e-mail until December 19, 2012 (the panel has to be submitted by the end of December). Please consider to limit abstracts to 250 words.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
