Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses experimental criminology. It begins by describing two different models that have greatly advanced field experiments on crime and justice in the last few decades (center to periphery and periphery to center), but owing to political realities have lost some of their influence. It argues that experimental criminology remains a vibrant and robust field of study and outlines a number of promising directions to guide the field in the coming years.

Keywords: experimental criminology; crime; justice; periphery; center
