Predatory Routines And Games
Editors’ Introduction In this chapter, Griffiths, Grosholz, and Watson offer a novel framework for understanding and predicting the emergence of predatory crime in time and space built on interaction game theory and routine activities theory. In articulating their premise, they explicitly integrate the uncertainties that exist in social interaction into offenders’ decision-making processes. Doing so provides insight into the processes whereby violence does and does not emerge, as well as the nature of its expression. In this way, they demonstrate how an emergence perspective can guide the integration of theoretical perspectives in a purposive manner: that is, one based on articulating and understanding the “decision rules” that give rise to the behavior under consideration.
