Dr. Barbara Warner of the Department of Criminal Justice recently collaborated with Dr. Elizabeth Beck and Dr. Mary Ohmer, two faculty members in the School of Social Work, to produce a research article that offers a critical look at how different policy types and approaches can impact neighborhood crime prevention.
The article, “Linking Informal Social Control and Restorative Justice: Moving Social Disorganization Theory Beyond Community Policing,” appeared in Contemporary Justice Review. Students of social work, criminal justice, psychology, sociology, and a variety of other subjects might all find the topics of social control and restorative justice to be excellent research topics for course papers or projects.
