Research sociological theories of crime, focusing on one of the three main perspectives: Structural Functionalism, Conflict Theory, and Symbolic Interactionist. Each perspective looks at meaningful variables to develop theories and social control policies. These include, generally, Economic Wealth and Poverty, Gender and Race, Gender Inequality, There are multiple theories to describe and frame social factors of crime pick one that you believe best fits your worldview (for example Anomie, General Strain Theory, Social Inequality, Labeling Theory. etc.) We do not anticipate that one theory is all-inclusive and will perfectly align with your worldview. That is the point, this is a complicated topic. Once you identify a theoretical perspective, provide a narrative, that includes your findings, and your opinion (based on your experiences), supported by research.
