Program description

State Crime: Government Violence and Corruption

When we turn on or read the news, we usually see stories of people around the world suffering at the hands of their own governments. Have you ever wondered what is really going on? How do these things happen? How can we stop it? This module is about crime committed by governments and it explores the definition and nature of state crime in criminological and political discourse. We look at examples of state crime and analyse them as a class. By the end of the course you will have a greater understanding of the worst types of crime. Arm yourself with academic theories and knowledge and never watch or read the news the same way again!
