Overview

You will be introduced to theoretical debates about the relationship between global, national and local questions of crime and punishment. You will also learn about the range of research methods that are used to explore such questions. An internship option will give you first-hand experience of the reality and importance of the idea of 'the global' for organisations engaged in criminal justice and related work.

By insisting on a genuinely international perspective that looks at, but also beyond, the experiences of affluent societies that have characteristically dominated criminological scholarship to date, the programme encourages you to think broadly and innovatively about this dynamic, burgeoning field of study.

The Global Criminology (Part-Time) course at Birkbeck, University of London will appeal to those seeking to develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of the key theoretical and practical issues that have shaped and currently play a major role in influencing matters of crime and punishment from a global perspective.
