The Open University

Course Information

Through an examination of diverse constructions of crime, global harms and examples of resistance, it provides a framework for understanding the conception, interrogation and reception of criminological knowledge. Building on Principles of social and psychological inquiry (DD801), it enhances students’ skills in critically reading the social world, understanding, analysing and questioning national, transnational and global policies and in deconstructing media representations of crime and justice. The Crime and Global Justice module from The Open University will allow you to review, evaluate and assess criminological evidence and develop skills highly desirable in professional contexts within local and global organisations.

Vocational relevance

This module provides skills that are highly desirable in professional contexts where social and criminological research is continually influencing the terms of reference. This ranges from how to commission new research on crime and global justice, critically appraising the existing evidence base, and communicating to diverse audiences. You’ll cultivate valuable investigative, evaluative, and analytic skills for your professional progression and development.
