CRJC 630 - Communities, Justice and Social Change
Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 0
This course is a graduate seminar on communities, justice and social change in the contemporary urban context. In this course, we give focused attention to “hard-hit” communities, i.e. communities where both crime and criminal justice activity exist in concentrated levels. We consider the impacts of crime on neighborhoods and communities, and we also examine the impacts that traditional criminal justice practices have on these communities. Strategies for empowering local communities to improve the quality of life and the quality of justice in the urban environment are explored.
