Women Offending and Victimisation Perspectives

15 points, 0.1250 EFTS



This course considers a range of explanatory theories emanating from a range of disciplines that contribute to current understandings of criminal offending, victimisation and societal responses. Field visits constitute part of the familiarisation with key aspects of philosophical approaches in these settings. There is significant input from visiting practitioners in the respective criminal justice practice settings of police, courts, probation, prisons, victim support and associated social services.
