This unit introduces students to the study of crime and human rights. The unit will trace the impact of human rights and other global forces on our understanding of what constitutes crime and harm. It will introduce students to key concepts of human rights and their application in a range of domestic and international criminal jurisdictions. Focusing on a series of contemporary case studies it will contrast European, Australian and North American inculcation of human rights in definitions and responses to crime: including policing, court processes, prosecution and punishment.
Upon completion of this unit students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of:
Online Project: 30%
