A lot of recent commentary states the need for micro-level studies and efforts to understand the underlying contexts and attractors of crime at place. The articles listed below deal with different aspects of this approach and might be of interest to you in your work. PDFs are all available online for easy reference.
Please feel free to send me your work as well. I am eager to read cutting-edge stuff and make reference to it where credit is due!
