98004 Emerging Issues in Crime and Criminology



In this subject, students engage with contemporary and emerging issues in criminology, security and justice through a symposium and professional learning model. They consider various aspects of the criminal justice system, in Australia and internationally, along with the broader socio-political contexts in which the systems operate. Specific topics are drawn from current trends; these may include hate crimes and extremism, representations of crime in the media and intersections of public health and crime. Students advance their skills in reporting on emerging phenomena and influencing change in professional contexts in response to emergent concerns.
