This unit explores how issues are identified as social and crime 'problems' and, how such categorisation influences the search for solutions, justice and social order. Students will investigate various social issues (such as economic inequality; health and substance problems; family problems; culture, race, ethnicity and marginalisation; sexuality and gender inequality; and social control) and their connection to crime and victimisation. 'Justice' is a key theme throughout the trimester and students will question how justice can be pursued, observed or fail in our topics. The unit will be relevant to those seeking to work in the criminal justice and legal system, human services (including social work) and the health care system. We will investigate examples from Australian context along with the international context for comparison.
