PUNISHMENT IN CONTEXT
Not currently offered
Credit points: 15
In this subject, we explore legally sanctioned punishment as both a concept and a practice. We examine the philosophical, legal and social significance attached to punishment as a response to crime and disorder, as well as the different ways in which punishment has been understood, manifested and analysed. Major shifts in practices of punishment are considered, with particular attention being paid to the emergence, nature and role of the modern prison and community corrections.
