The gang problem that exists in Chicago, Illinois is one that is not limited to the boundaries of the city. The violence that stains the landscape has spilled into other states as well as other countries. This presentation will touch on the socioeconomic conditions that set the stage for the conception, growth, and expansion of gangs that originate in Chicago, but hold a global reach. The mediation and conflict resolution practices that currently exist in Chicago will also be evaluated, as will their effectiveness be gauged. The relationship gang members in Chicago have with their organizational brethren outside of Chicago will be addressed.
