Crime, Justice, and Reform

Transnational criminal enterprises such as human and drug trafficking, money laundering, illicit wildlife trade, and cartel violence raise significant concerns in international crime and justice studies. Nationally, criminology and criminal justice are fundamentally concerned with promoting justice by investigating the causes of crime, the administration of justice, the law as a mechanism for justice and crime control, and policy evaluation.  Though the causes of crime are multifaceted and population-specific, Green School faculty focus their research efforts on addressing the aforementioned issues by investigating topics that have measurable effects and long-lasting policy implications in the criminal justice field, ranging from local to international contexts.
