Note: This unit is Intensively delivered over 5 days, 9am – 2pm: November 1st 2021 – 5th November 2021.
This unit provides a critical introduction to issues and debates relating to crime in the context of sport. From doping to corruption in the world game, sport and crime are inextricably linked. Sharing a number of themes and issues such as violence, terrorism and security, sport and crime both offer key sites through which to explore key social processes and practices. Perhaps paradoxically, sport is also presented as an important avenue for crime prevention and rehabilitation. The unit draws on sociological concepts and theories as well as a number of case studies from Australia and abroad, to explore the inter-relationships between sport and crime, including corruption, mega-events and security, violence, child protection and human rights and sports-based interventions for crime prevention and rehabilitation.
