Content

This unit examines issues concerning designing criminological research, including research ethics, methodology and data collection, theoretical approaches to research, reviewing existing literature, presenting research findings and the politics of criminological research. The unit explores research methods from a critical perspective, using a combination of evidence from Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States.
