Living among sex offenders

Alice Ievins applies some of the established questions from the prison sociology tradition to the sex offender prisoner population.

The research explores experiences related to safety, the management of identity, the development of hierarchies and the formation and maintenance of friendships within this institutional context.

Alice Ievins was a winner of the 2013 John Sunley prize.
