This LibGuide is design for PS 304/CRJT 304: Crime, Politics, and Public Policy
This course explores the way in which government treats crime as a public policy matter, with a predominant focus on legislative and executive branch activity. Topics may vary somewhat from year to year. Examples of policies to examined and evaluated include: reducing the incidence of crime, the politics of imprisonment, punitive and restorative justice, decriminalization, drugs and crime, death penalty, gun control, hate crimes, "zero tolerance" approaches, pornography, corporate crime, organized crime, and terrorism. The constitutional and legal framework of policies will also be considered.
