Full event details

Sessions include:

Criminological Theory
The main focus of contemporary criminological theory is to provide answers to the question: Why do some people get involved in criminal and deviant activities? Criminological theorists have attempted to answer this question mainly from biological, psychological, and sociological points of view. This taster session focuses on a selected sociological theory of crime that is known as ‘General Strain Theory’. Drawing upon real case studies, the session will examine the extent to which the General Strain Theory could explain ‘terrorist’ acts.

Youth Justice
The youth justice system deals with those young people between the ages of 10 and 17 who commit a criminal offence. This taster session considers why some young people might get in trouble with the law and how society reacts to such behaviour. Using case studies and an interactive approach, it asks questions such as: ‘what happens to young people who offend?’ and ‘what might be the best way to deal with youth crime?’

Penology
Tackle tough questions on how we should punish crime, whether prison even works and how those that are in custody 'experience' it differently. Working in groups, suggest alternatives to the prison system.

Policing
When we think of ‘policing’ we might think of uniformed officers, employed by the state, aiming to reduce crime by making arrests. However, this is a relatively old-fashioned image of the police. Modern policing encompasses a wide range of activities, undertaken by various actors and institutions. During this session, we will think about alternative, sometimes hidden, methods of policing, and the consequences that these have on our society.
