This course provides an understanding of the global patterns increasingly found in criminal justice policies and criminal offences. It takes a social view of crime, a view which links crime to issues of power, resources, rights, (in)equality, governance and culture. This leads us to questions, for example, why certain groups of people are more likely than others to become offenders, why certain kinds of offenders are more likely than others to be caught, how some governments commit ‘state crime’ and why so many people are simultaneously fearful of, yet fascinated by, crime. Students can spend either a term or a full academic year studying in the United States.
