Dr. Natalia Hanley
Criminology inherently is a comparative endeavour. Core criminological questions about the relationship between gender and crime, the effectiveness of criminal justice institutions and the intersections between culture and crime can and have been addressed in reference to comparison- historical, geographical, political- and so on. Comparative criminology seeks to explore the possibilities and limitations of comparative work through case studies in areas such as policing, juvenile justice, imprisonment, people trafficking and capital punishment. We will investigate these case studies in reference to key conceptual frameworks including sovereignty, cultural relativism and globalisation.
