A criminology of moral order: New Horizons in Criminology

Research output: Book / ReportBookAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Moral order is disturbed by criminal events. However, in a secularized and networked society a common moral ground is increasingly hard to find.
People feel confused about the bigger issues of our time such as crime, anti-social behaviour, Islamist radicalism, sexual harassment and populism. Traditionally, issues around morality have been neglected by criminologists.
Through theory, case studies and discussion, this book sheds a new and topical light on these concerns. Using the moral perspective, Boutellier bridges the gap between people’s emotional opinions on crime, and criminologists' rationalized answers to questions of crime and security.
