Examine the fascinating connections between crime, penal theory, politics and policy, alongside changing perceptions and representations of crime. By doing criminology with politics one third of your modules will be politics-related. We’ll take an inter-disciplinary approach to the study of criminology and politics, situating criminological and political structures, processes and action within wider historical, economic and international contexts. You’ll cover the processes of internationalisation/globalisation and their impact on crime, politics and policy; and the practical contribution of criminological and political concepts, theories and forms of understanding to problem solving and forging more socially just and sustainable global futures. You’ll develop core cognitive, analytical, critical, communicative and interpretative skills as well as your ability to translate these into research practice in the fields of criminology and politics.
