Using Canadian municipal data, Dr. Wong is writing a paper on how social conditions in terms of stratification, social relations, culture, political organization, and alternative social control affect the mobilization of law. As a sequel to his article on family disorganization and crime published in 2007, his next project is to incorporate the 2006 Census data in a new analysis. He is also working on a multi-year project of revising and expanding his Sociology of Homicide lecture materials into a publishable manuscript.
