Crime and social policy focuses on the British case as an empirical benchmark where social policies of the modern welfare state intersect with criminal justice policies. The course starts with the concept of social question and discuss the notion of social order with social question of crime; an alleged relationship between class, poverty and crime.  Michel Foucault's governmentality is suggested as a theoretical framework to analyse the course of co-development of administrative technologies problematising some sectors of population and also subjecting them to the criminal justice apparatuses. From the British case, we will cover such topics as disordered family, youth delinquency, community safety and prison reforms.
