CCJ 365U Criminology and Social Justice Theory

Begins with an analysis of critical criminology theories and their underlying assumptions. Explores the connections between critical criminology and social justice, the social justice movement, and the communities wherein social justice is practiced. Application of social justice theory to criminal justice policy and practice has created a new set of social response mechanisms to crime and delinquency: mediation, restitution, and restorative justice.
