Birkbeck, University of London

Course Introduction

Crime and criminal justice are the source of much public concern, fear and fascination. Generating ongoing controversy and debate, crime and criminal justice policy remain pressing issues within media, government and local communities. Yet the mix of factors that contribute to crime and the range of strategies for addressing crime are increasingly complex. Studying this course at Birkbeck will provide you with the skills necessary to understand and assess the dilemmas of crime and justice in contemporary society. You will develop your ability to critically engage in key debates within the field, and gain the tools necessary to understand the social, political, economic and cultural contexts of crime, justice, security and disorder.

This course not only explores the worlds of prisons, courts, probation and the police, but grapples with broader social questions about order, regulation, surveillance and control.
