This assessment is worth 100% of the total marks for the module.
You should complete any one of the questions below.
1: Assess the extent to which crime figures and trends are influenced by social class, and in
particular by common assumptions made about the ‘underclass’.
2 Labelling and subcultural theories see crime and deviance as the outcome of social
processes. What are these processes and how convincing are the theoretical
accounts of them?
3. Some social groups appear to experience secondary victimisation in which police
actions amplify rather than decrease the experience of victimisation. Who is most
likely to experience this? Why? What can be done to prevent it?
