Collaborative Analysis of Offenders' Personal and Area Based Social Exclusion


This project addresses two related social sceince research questions: (i) are there measurable realtionships between the characteristics of young people with difficulty, and the socio-economic and physical characteristics of the area thet live in?; (ii) are government policies addressing the multiple facets of social exclusion, including heatlh, education, employment, and crime prevention, targeted in the areas that need them most, where young offenders live and most crimes are commited? The key objectives are: (i) to demonstrate how grid technologies can be used to enhance the capicity to address substantive social science research questions; (ii) to produce a substantive reseacrh output based on the application; (iii) the developmet of grid technologies; (iv) to produce training output that can form part of a braoder strategy aimed at demonstrating the application of grid technologies to the wider social science; (v) to work collaboratively with computational scientists to build an interdisciplinary community of scientists who can carry forward and develop e-science within the social sciences.
