This course surveys theoretical frameworks, analytical approaches, and implementation methods for changing the behavior and output of criminal justice agencies. It includes the study of various planned alterations in institutions and communities to transform values, structures, and outcomes for crime control and justice administration. Learning focuses on the identification and assessment of different forms of change and key stages of reform (i.e., problem identification, intervention planning and implementation, process and outcome evaluation, and recalibration and standardization). This course is conducted as a seminar in which students meet to reflect on assigned theoretical readings and discuss case studies under the guidance of the instructor.
