There has been much debate in recent years about the role of gangs in both disrupting and providing social order. In this event, scholars from three disciplines draw on their research to debate the significance of gangs and other mechanisms of informal social ordering, the conditions under which they arise, and their relationship to formal sources of social ordering such as law.
