Evidence summary on minimising harm from and within gangs in Aotearoa

Our office has undertaken a project to understand the context within which gangs exist in Aotearoa New Zealand. This report provides an evidence synthesis of the harms done by, to, and within gang communities. The work draws from both academic and grey literature. Importantly, we have also been guided by experts, stakeholders, and those with lived experiences who took time to share their time and wisdom with us. We gratefully acknowledge their mahi.
