Abstract

This article discusses the interim findings from a research project carried out by the Wirral Joint Community Safety Team (WJCST) that has sought to measure residents' fear of crime prior to the implementation of an ‘alley gating’ target‐hardening project in a local authority ward in Wirral, Merseyside. The main determinant of fear for residents in this sample has been housing tenure, which may be a more reliable indicator for fear of crime than age or gender as cited in previous studies. This study found that those who reside in the private rented sector express more concern for safety issues and crime than those who are owner‐occupiers or rent from registered social landlords. The hypotheses are that within housing tenure, the two key variables are length of residence in the community and financial resources to fund security measures. These are probably the main causal factors for a higher margin of fear for private renters.

Abstract

Sir Frederick Handley Page, who died recently at the age of 76, had remarkable achievements to his credit in the development of aviation. He designed his famous bomber for World War I while still in his twenties and built up the great aircraft organisation which bore his name and which was responsible, among other things, for the slotted wing, the Victor and the Herald.

Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to describe and explain a contemporary phenomenon.

Design/methodology/approach

This is an analysis of research reports and fiction texts.

Findings

Universities use mergers and acquisitions to improve their ranking positions, ignoring the effects on research and teaching.

Research limitations/implications

More attention should be paid to current managerial fashions.

Practical implications

An opposition to thoughtless fashion following may lead to positive changes.

Social implications

If you mean “societal implications”, the state of universities is very important to democratic societies.

Originality/value

These are not for the author to judge.
