Full event details

When reading any newspaper, listening to the radio, watching television or even following social media, it is likely that there will be some representation of ‘crime and deviance’ – county lines drug dealing, illegal raves, political protests which extend into criminal activity. Criminologists try to understand why only some people engage in these activities while most conform to mainstream norms and values. This then raises the question of who it is who determines what mainstream norms and values ought to look like and how we reach agreement. Participants in this session will explore and share ideas on some of the many theories which seek to explain crime and deviance.
