This seminar course explores the criminological perspectives of crime and social control. The discussion will focus on the contexts that shape the emergence of the crime and the modes of social intervention that characterize the criminal justice system. Specific attention will be paid to the institutions of the police, courts, and prisons in order to appreciate their functioning in the current legal framework, and suggest recommendations for reform.

The course aims at equipping students to recognize the main problems, questions, dichotomies and ideas surrounding crime commission and crime prevention, and the role of the criminal justice institutions therein.
