The module aims to give students a firm understanding of the complexity of debates on domestic violence, crime control, and crime prevention; and to develop students' skills in the cross national comparative analysis of crime and criminal justice. In addition, problem, solving, debate, critical analysis and writing concise evidence based reports will form part of the skills development.
