Program details

This study tour will showcase the cultural and socio-economic development of Asian countries and its relevance to crime and justice. The unit will cover topics including crime control, the legal system, prisons and punishment, social inequality and crime, and juvenile justice. Students will be asked to consider how dominant Western ideas of criminological theory and research may or may not apply in Asian countries through comparative studies. The tour will be led by experienced academics whilst visiting local professional practitioners such as police, crime investigation agents, prosecutors, judges, prison staff and NGOs in Asia.
