About this Unit
This unit provides an introduction to the study of both crime and criminal justice from a criminological perspective. The definition of particular social problems as crimes, how crime is measured and explained and who are identified as criminals or victims is not straightforward. This unit challenges the common sense view that accepts at face value that crime can be defined by criminal law or by a conceptual analysis of the harm done. With a discussion of fundamental elements of institutions and practices the unit examines how police, courts and corrections influence processes of criminalisation and victimisation and the societal context in which this occurs.
