White Collar Crime (2018CCJ)

This course introduces students to the broad concept of white collar crime, examining in detail some of the most harmful categories of this type of offending. In addition to providing students with an understanding of the definition, scope and impact of this type of crime the course focuses on explaining and preventing white collar crime. Drawing upon psychological, sociological, organisational and integrated theories of offending and victimisation, students will develop a conceptual framework for understanding how and why white collar crimes occur and its impact. Recognising, in addition to police, the pivotal role of regulatory agencies who are largely responsible for detecting and preventing white collar crime, students will examine the regulatory agency system, their role within the broader criminal justice system and the theoretical basis for how they operate. Incompatible: 3011CCJ Regulation and White Collar Crime; CCJ31 Regulation and White Collar Crime.
