This module examines contemporary developments in criminology, crime and the governance of crime, focusing in particular on the effects of globalisation upon crime, criminology and criminal justice. Part 1 of the module examines global crime issues including terrorism and illegal migration, and it interrogates the crime control systems enacted in response to these issues, looking at the effects and extent of global crime policy convergence. Part 2 of the module examines state crime, war crime, and human rights, focussing on historical and contemporary forms of mass atrocity, colonialism, genocide, torture and the international mechanisms designed to prevent and fix these large-scale social harms. Questions about the changing nature and function of criminology, contemporary states, and the problems of balancing human rights with human security will be tackled throughout the module.
