Description:
This report reflects the experiences of people who have been the victims of anti-social behaviour and the experiences of those who have been threatened with or faced punitive action under the provisions against antisocial behaviour in the Housing (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1997, drafted on the heel of the heroin crisis of the 1990s. Based on first-hand accounts of how antisocial behaviour is interpreted in practice on two local authority housing estates in Dún Laoghaire – Rathdown and one in Wicklow, the report considers the measures used to deal with behaviour deemed to be anti-social and the effects those measures have on personal, family, and community life. The report also looks at alternatives to evictions and exclusions. Rather than more of the same, the report calls for measures that help reweave, not further unravel, the fabric of community life.
