Bernstein Lecture 2013 | Nicola Lacey, Comparative Criminal Justice: An Institutional Approach

April 04, 2013

Professor Nicola Lacey, of All Souls College at Oxford University, presents the 2013 Annual Bernstein Lecture titled "Comparative Criminal Justice: An Institutional Approach."

In this lecture, Professor Lacey makes a case for studying comparative criminal justice with close reference to not only the distinctive cultural contexts, but also the particular institutional settings in which rules and policies are developed and put into operation in different countries. Accordingly, she argues that both historical and political-economic approaches are worthy of further development in this field.
