There is immense variation in the way different cultures deal with crime. This unit provides a critical introduction to the philosophies, structures and procedures of criminal justice institutions in a number of international jurisdictions. The unit explores the underlying philosophical similarities and differences between institutions and practices in a range of countries, while offering insights into how these features affect our understanding of crime in a global society. The concept of global justice is also explored by examining the role of International Criminal Court and the various features of transnational law enforcement, criminal investigation, prosecution and punishment. This unit adopts an interdisciplinary, comparative approach and encourages students to explore a range of theoretical and applied material on cross-cultural and international criminology using a combination of databases, policy documents, legal cases and empirical studies.
