Social Deviance

Two main theroretical explanations will be used to shed light on the phenomena: Positivist and constructionist theories. Different types of social deviance will be analysed. Alcohol and drug use, public attitudes to prostitution and drug use, public attitudes to prison and punishment, social and economic crises.
