Politics and Criminology - University of Huddersfield

**Why study Politics and Criminology? What is the most effective way to police crime? How should society organise systems of justice? Crime, justice and policing are inherently linked to the world of politics. Studying the two disciplines together gives you a unique opportunity to see how they interrelate, and how political processes can shape the criminal justice system and vice versa. Crime affects every economy and every nation across the globe. Yet as societies attempt to address criminal behaviours, the nature of crime is constantly changing.
