This unit introduces students to the various ways in which we think about and respond to crime and its control. It introduces some of the key frameworks for understanding and explaining crime and examines some of the main types of crime. Examples include crimes between persons, groups and organisations, and crimes at local, national and international levels. The unit also provides a foundation for future study in criminology subjects.
