The course makes use of a wide range of case studies, as well as different types of statistical sources, to provide a picture of crime dimensions and trends in Australia and internationally. It also introduces students to issues of definition and measurement, theories of crime causation, and responses to crime in the areas of criminal justice and prevention.
