Justice, Policing, & Security
  
 
Publications


Concerns over social cohesion and national security, especially the contemporary preoccupation with terrorism, have raised the public profile of debate surrounding how Canada and its justice and security systems can ensure a balanced and fair approach to an increasingly diverse population – to maintain order, public safety and national security while preserving civil liberties and the Canadian multicultural model of an open, diverse society.

Criminological Highlights
Prepared by Anthony Doob, Rosemary Gartner, Tom Finlay, John Beattie, Carla
Cesaroni, Maria Jung, Myles Leslie, Ron Levi, Natasha Madon, Nicole Myers, Holly Pelvin, Andrea Shier, Jane Sprott, Sara Thompson, Kimberly Varma, and
Carolyn Yule

Criminological Highlights produces summaries of key criminological research.  This issue explores themes ranging from immigrant crime and racial issues to policing and imprisonment.  Of particular interest for Metropolis readers is the article on immigrant youth (Article 1). 

This article adds further weight to the conclusion that immigrants are less likely to engage in crime than other subsets of the Canadian population.
