Individuals in contact with the Criminal Justice System (CJS) come from diverse backgrounds with unique risks and needs. To be effective CJS responses must be tailored to meet this diversity. This course exposes students to the complex intersections between different sub-groups and the CJS, explores how these disparities are explained and considers current advances in practice to meet these diverse needs. Patterns of offending and victimisation, prosecution and criminalisation, and issues of prevention and victim support are explored in local and international contexts.
