This topic provides students with an advanced understanding of research explaining how crime is organised and controlled, with particular emphasis on exploring recent developments in the area of criminal network analysis. It offers a overview of the application of network theories to the field of criminology, an assessment of empirical work examining and explaining specific forms of criminality (e.g. cybercrime, terrorism, organised crime), as well as applied methodological and analytical training in the interpretation of network crime data.
Introduce students to the central concepts relevant to the criminological literature and theories about how crime is organised and how it can be controlled.
Provide an advanced conceptual and applied understanding of how criminal networks form, operate and proliferate in various contexts.
Examine the practical implications of research into criminal networks for crime control.
