CRIME, SOCIETY AND TECHNOLOGY

DESCRIPTION

In this module students will be focused on the comprehension of insecurity in its broader sense. The main theories from sociology of law, criminology, deviance and surveillance will be analysed. The key factor in this subject is the inclusion of subjective elements into the analysis, subjectivities linked to the environment that have an impact on perception about risk, safety and insecurity.
