Same Crime, Different Location, Different Outcome – Criminology

Event providers: UCEN Manchester

Event Fallback Image

What does a criminal look like? And do they look different depending on where they live?

Criminology is the scientific study of crime and criminals. However, a “criminal” in the UK, may not actually be a “criminal” in the USA – strange?

During this highly interactive workshop, we will explore and identify a range of responses and perspectives concerning the illegal and legal substances people have discovered, and debate how substances can be treated differently across the globe in terms of the criminal justice system. The workshop aims to get students thinking outside of the box to give them an insight into their view of the criminal justice system. Do they want to be an agent of change or part of reinforcement?

Further reference will be made to the principles of sociology and other non-legal fields, including psychology, economics, statistics, and anthropology.

Workshops available on campus Tuesdays 2:00 – 3:30 pm.
