It will give students opportunities to learn from experienced academics and professional practitioners such as police, crime investigation agents, prosecutors, judges, prison staff and NGOs in Asia. Examples of topics include, policing, crime control, legal system, prisons and punishment, social inequality and crime, and juvenile justice.
