Transeuropa Caravans "reach out to Europeans where they are, at their sites of struggle, at their places of initiative. Ahead of the European Parliament elections 2014, we connect local alternative voices across the continent". Between 25th April and 10th May 2014, Transeuropa Caravans left "six cities and travel[led] towards another city, passing through more than 30 spots".

It was initiated by non-governmental organisation/charity and social movement activists and encouraged people to participate through special events. Transeuropa Caravans was transnational in orientation and concerned with anti-discrimination; equality & social justice; democracy, politics & representation; economy; and environment & sustainability.

Crime, Order and Social Control

Have you ever been the victim of crime? Are you fearful of rising crime rates? Crime is one of contemporary society's most pressing social problems - how should we respond to it? This album visits various communities in the UK to explore issues of criminal justice and the introduction of possibly controversial crime control initiatives such as restorative justice, which involves offenders meeting their victims. It also looks at schemes tackling problems of racial violence and other anti-social behaviours. This material forms part of The Open University course D315 Crime, order and social control.
