Respect agenda


Respect agenda

The Respect agenda was launched in September 2005 by Tony Blair in the United Kingdom. Tony Blair described it as being about "putting the law abiding majority back in charge of their communities" [http://www.number10.gov.uk/output/Page8819.asp] . Its aim was to help central government, local agencies, local communities and citizens to work together to tackle anti-social behaviour more effectively.

In a speech in January 2006, Tony Blair acknowledged the work of sociologist Richard Sennett, particularly his 2003 book "Respect in a World of Inequality" [http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/4600156.stm] .

In late December 2007 it was reported that the government of Gordon Brown had effectively ended the Respect programme by closing down the Respect Task Force and moving its head to another job inside the Cabinet Office [http://politics.guardian.co.uk/tonyblair/story/0,,2232055,00.html] .

Respect Task Force

The agenda was co-ordinated by the Respect Task Force, a cross-governmental unit based at the Home Office. Louise Casey, former director of the Anti-Social Behaviour Unit, headed the Task Force.

Respect Action Plan

The key policies of the Task Force were published in the Respect Action Plan in January 2006. The report advised tackling the underlying causes of anti-social behaviour, intervening early where problems occur and broadening efforts to address other areas of poor behaviour.

Anti-social behaviour

The agenda introduced a range of tools including Anti-Social Behaviour Orders, Parenting Orders, Family Intervention Projects and Dispersal Notices. The Task Force claimed use of a combination of the available tools can be effective when tackling the problem, although Anti-Social Behaviour Orders have encountered some controversy.
