Please note: this is archived course information from 2018 for CRIM 710.


This course provides an exploration of cybercrime and cyber-harm, using examples such as cyberobscenity and cyberterrorism to illustrate the economic and social impacts. The course aims to encourage critical thinking, considering a range of key theoretical perspectives in criminal justice and their application to cybercrime. We analyse how the internet may promote criminal behaviour and contribute to the globalisation of crime. Finally, we examine the challenges of policing cybercrime, evaluating current approaches and discuss recommendations.
