Summary The term "crime" is often "taken-for-granted" and poorly defined in contemporary Australian and International research. There is also considerable debate amongst scholars working in different theoretical tranditions about the appropriate definition of crime. This reflects broader public division about the types of behaviour or people that are classed as criminal.
