This course provides an overview of issues in the ecology of crime, with particular emphasis on the area of communities and crime by addressing existing criminological theories and how they can be applied to the study of community crime levels. This includes a critical analysis of existing empirical research. We will also read and discuss anthropological approaches to crime in neighborhoods. Attention will be given to both the factors that influence community-level crime rates, as well as the effects that community characteristics have on the behavior and outcomes of individuals.
