About this Unit
In 2019 this unit replaced by 102709 - Introduction to Criminal Justice.This unit provides an introduction to the study of criminal justice from a critical criminological perspective. How crime is measured and explained, who are identified as criminals or victims, and how to effectively respond to crime is not straightforward. The unit examines the workings of the criminal justice system, and analyses how police, courts and corrections influence the processes of criminalisation and victimisation, and the societal context in which this occurs. The unit looks at other forms of control and prevention beyond those of the criminal justice system.
