FRAME GANG European Framework of Competences for Community Professionals in Gang Environments

It is widely recognised that street gangs are connected with violence. Aggressive and violent youths are at greater risk of joining collectivities that we call street gangs or troublesome youth groups. Many European countries face reality, therefore, the study of European street gangs and troublesome youth groups is of great importance as it will enable a better understanding of the causes of youth violence.
