CRI2531 – L’analyse stratégique

The notion of strategy refers to the idea that crime is the result of a rational decision and calculated an individual to violate a law and thus to obtain a benefit, whether material or otherwise. Assuming that man is free and fully decides of its own shares, strategic analysis involves calculating cost / benefit from the individual will tend to systematically maximize gains and minimize costs . Therefore, and based on this principle, much of the thinking in criminology revolves around the idea that the fight and prevention against crime lie in deterrence or situational manner (prevent the criminal from committing an act ), or by punishment and imprisonment.
