Free Talk On Fresh Research On Framing Crime, Criminal Justice And Gang Harm

The way we talk about and report on social issues like crime, criminal justice and gangs has an impact on how people understand those issues.

That is why The Workshop have updated our 2020 research on framing crime and justice with a focus on gang harm and are offering a free talk covering the latest insights for journalists and people who report on and communicate about crime, criminal justice and gangs. We're offering two time options for the hour long talk and there will be opportunities for questions and answers.

Reframing Crime and Justice talk 1 - 22 November 10.30 - 11.30am

Reframing Crime and Justice talk 2 - 29 November 5.30 - 6.30pm

In this talk, Marianne Elliott, Co-director of The Workshop, will cover what research and testing shows are ways of writing and talking about crime and criminal justice that work to deepen public understanding, and avoid reinforcing shallow and inaccurate ideas.

She’ll share The Workshop’s most recent work which draws on interviews with experts on gang harm and gangs, reviews of international evidence and includes recommendations on effective ways to deepen public understanding about gangs and gang harm.

We don’t report into a neutral space. People come to our reporting with existing beliefs and ideas about the issues. When most people's understanding of an issue is shallow, as is the case with crime, gangs and criminal justice, our reporting is filtered through those shallow understandings, making it hard to have productive public conversations.

This research was funded by three philanthropic organisations: the J R McKenzie Trust, the Borrin Foundation and the Tindall Foundation.

Gordon Campbell: On The New Government’s Policies Of Yesteryear

Winston Peters is routinely described as the kingmaker who decides whether the centre right or the centre-left has a turn at running this country. He also plays a less heralded, but equally important role as the scapegoat who can be blamed for killing taxes that his senior partners never much wanted in the first place. Neither Ardern nor Robertson for example, really wanted a capital gains tax, for fear of Labour copping the “tax and spend“ label they ended up being saddled with anyway. Usefully though, they could tell the party faithful it was wicked old Winston who killed the CGT. More

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
