Crime is an issue that governments and communities face every day. The meaning of justice and the best way to respond to crime and criminality are the subject of ongoing passionate debate in the media, in parliaments, in court rooms, and in communities, locally and globally.
Criminology is the study of crime, criminality and criminal justice systems, focussing on criminalisation as a process, the causes of crime, the social context of offending, crime prevention, systems of social control, and the punishment and rehabilitation of offenders.
Criminologists critically analyse the policies, practices, systems, culture and relationships at an individual and societal level to improve understanding, advance the evidence base, and develop initiatives and agendas for change.
