Global and Strategic Issues in Criminology - PICT301

This unit draws upon the knowledge and capacities developed over the course of the criminology major to explore issues of global and strategic significance. Students will undertake an advanced analysis of a complex topic from a criminological and policing/regulatory perspective, with topics including immigration and the criminalisation of borders, transnational policing of sex trafficking and trafficking, restorative justice in transitional states, and the global ‘War on Drugs’. Successful completion of the unit will provide a pathway to postgraduate study in Criminology and related disciplines such as Security Studies, Policing, Intelligence, Cyber Security or Counter Terrorism.
