Overview Overview

Is crime more or less prevalent now than before? Why are some people more likely to engage in criminal activity than others? Why are some behaviours defined as crime and others are not? These are some of the questions taken up by sociologists concerned with the relationship between crime and society. In this module, students learn about the major theoretical and empirical debates and issues in the sociology of crime literature. Special attention is given to placing the Irish case in comparative perspective.
