Nothing Fake Here:
The Public Criminology Case for Being Smart on Crime By Being Smarter on People
Speaker: Dr. Alex R. Piquero
About the Program
This workshop discusses the various types of public criminologies and highlights both advantages and disadvantages associated with public engagement. Two case studies are utilized as examples of public criminology, one focused on early childhood prevention and a second on immigration and crime. The crux of the argument advanced is that public policy can be smart on crime by being smarter on people. The common theme linking these two areas are the vulnerability of children and immigrants.
