3 subsections on the following theorist and theory
Cesare Beccaria, Classical Theory (Deterrence theory)
Section 1: Theory of Crime Causation
-A. Theory and theorist descriiption: What are the key points of the theory that you selected? Who developed theory? When was the theory developed? Why did the theorist develop this theory of crime causation?
B. Theory origin and context (social, political): What was going on at the time this theory was developed? Did these events help shape the theory?
C. Theory application to various types of crime: Is the theory you chose a general theory of crime causation (e.g. Sutherland’s theory of Differential Association), a middle range theory (e.g. A theory applied only to a specific group, such as juveniles, e.g. Cohen’s strain theory), or a crime-specific theory (e.g. homicide—southern violence hypothesis)?
Section 2: A Review of the Evidence
D. Has the theory been evaluated? If so, how, when, where, and by whom? To conduct your review, you will need to identify and summarize the results of research studies that have tested the theory under review. I expect you to review the major criminology journals, which include Criminology, Annals of Criminology, Crime and Delinquency, Justice Quarterly, and the Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency.
E. What does the research reveal? Note: I require the inclusion of table summarizing the key findings from your research review in a table with the following headings: Study author (year of publication); study sample size; research design type; key study findings (link between independent and dependent variables, e.g. unemployment and crime). This is a required element and needs to be included in your final paper; it is not needed for your outline submission.
F. What are the strengths and limitations of the theory? Does the theory need to be revised? Is more research needed?
Section 3: Policy Implications
A. According to the theory, how do we solve the crime problem? (note: for ideas, look at Criminology and Public Policy)
B. Have we tried to solve crime based on this theory? Example: mandatory sentencing and deterrence theory
C. What have we learned from these efforts?
At minimum, be sure to review the following journals to see if they include articles (2000- present) in your subject area: Criminology, Criminology and Public Policy, Justice Quarterly, Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency, and Crime and Delinquency.
