Comparative Historical Studies
The course examines the range of legal, political and social responses across the world to what is widely called 'the penal crisis'. Blending a rigorous understanding of fundamental theory with evidence about real world problems, the students analyse recent innovations in theory, policy and practice. Drawing on a number of disciplinary approaches, the course enables students to develop a rational and just response to crime.
