The determinants of penal policy in Western countries: This course looks at recent trends in Western countries in penal policies, practices, and patterns and looks for factors that can help us explain particular developments in particular places. Factors include national differences in political structure and constitutional arrangements, in the organization of legal institutions and processes, in the selection and career structures of officials and practitioners, and in penal, legal, and media traditions and culture. One recurring question will be, Why does or doesn't this factor have the influence in Switzerland that it does elsewhere ?
