Literacy – QWC
· Text is legible and that spelling, punctuation and grammar are accurate so that meaning is clear
· Select and use a form and style of writing appropriate to purpose and to complex subject matter
· Organise information clearly and coherently
· Use specialist vocabulary (see concepts)
- What is zemiology?
· Comes from the Greek word of harm
- How does the study of zemiology take the study of traditional criminology outside its boundaries?
· If an act is not a crime- however ‘bad’ it may be- then perhaps it is not a suitable subject for criminologists? Some reject this view and argue that we should broaden our investigations so as to include the study of harms: the many acts which may injure humans or the environment, but which very often are not against any law.
- How are some crimes outside national boundaries?
· They inflict damage on a global scale. Many other crimes too are not confined to a single nation-state, such as cybercrime, for example. As the world becomes ever more interconnected. The scope for globalised crimes increases.
- What is globalisation?
· Refers to the interconnectedness of societies, so that what happens in one locality is shaped by distant events and vice versa. For example, HELD ET AL define globalisation as ‘the widening, deepening and speeding up of world-wide interconnectedness in all aspects of life, from the cultural to criminal, the financial to the spiritual’
- What are the causes of globalisation?
· Spread of new information and communication technologies (ICT) and the influence of global mass media, cheap air travel, the deregulation of financial and other markets and their opening up to competition, and easier movement so that businesses can easily relocate to countries where profits will be greater.
- Identify the different forms of global crime (Castell)
· Arms trafficking to illegal regimes, guerrilla groups and terrorists.
