The TRANSGANG project will develop a renewed model for the analysis of transnational youth gangs in the global era, in dialogue with two classics of urban ethnography, published nearly a century ago: The Gang, by F.M. Thrasher (1926) and The Polish Peasant in Europe and America, by W. I. Thomas and F. Znaniecki (1918‐1920). Traditionally, a youth gang has been typically understood as a small delinquent group of young men based in a locality. The focus has been on crime and violence.
