Pre-requisites: LAW21004

Aims/Description: This module examines race, gender and (in)justice, specifically the degree to which responses to offenders and victims may be gendered and racialised. In addition to focusing on different stages of the criminal justice system, from policing to imprisonment, the module examines `crimmigration¿ and border criminologies, contemporary resistance movements such as #MeToo and Black Lives Matter, and postcolonial approaches to crime. The centrality of gender and race to strategies of penal control and punishment is a central theme running through the module.
