Dr. Gayle Back to Deliver Lecture on Crime and Violence

Renowned anthropologist Dr. Herbert Gayle is back in town and will be delivering a public lecture on Friday at the Bliss Institute.  Dubbed the Failure of Suppression, why and how violence reduction makes dollars and sense, the instructional speech will look at how the system of suppression has failed to achieve its desired results in the context of reducing crime nationally and regionally.

Dr. Herbert Gayle, Anthropologist of Social Violence

“Tomorrow at six at the Bliss, we’ll be talking about the issue within the Caribbean space of suppression and how long we’ve been doing suppression because we’ve been at this for decades and the quality of the results we’ve been getting and in fact the kinds of alternatives there are to suppression that bear fruit in various countries and that are bearing fruit in all the countries that are still using suppression and we’re trying to grapple with the preoccupation with suppression.  We’re looking at how dollars and sense, as in the cost of suppression, as in hwy we should use it and when not to.  So we want to spend an hour or so tomorrow, you know, looking at how best to do some things and not to in this fight we have of reducing violence in the region, especially in Belize, Trinidad and Jamaica.”
