Abstract First paragraph: There is no denying that knife carrying and knife crime is an issue that we face here in Scotland, the UK and elsewhere in the world. How do we try to address it?
In 2013, Scottish Government commissioned the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research to conduct an extensive literature review, which I was responsible for conducting. This involved bringing together all information about a wide range of approaches and interventions used throughout the world.
