THE QUESTION
Using what you have learned in this course unpack the key INSTITUTIONS and ORGANISATIONS underpinning criminology from a given time period.
Apply your analysis to the problem of SOCIAL ORDER.
TIPS ON CONTENT
The following are very important topics that must be addressed:
1. Offer a clear and concise definition of institutions and organisations, as explored in key readings from week 1 & 2, in the weekly lectures and student activities.
2. Make sure that you identify:
a. Key institutions that were influential at that time
b. Key organisations that were influential at that time
3. A good essay will also demonstrate critical thinking through analysis, for example:
a. Show how the theory being discussed empowered institutional change
b. Show how the key organisations opened or limited access to privileges
c. Discuss how access to privilege affected either the understanding of social order or the mechanisms and techniques of social control at that time
d. How the emergence of a new criminological theory at that time influenced, reinforced or challenged the dominant social order of the day
4. REMEMBER that this essay question is an application of the institutions and organisations matrix that we used throughout the term to focus our discussions. In your essay you should focus on the time period appropriate to the emergence of the theory being discussed.
