Hi,

I'm a second year combined honours student, doing Sociology and Criminology. We are expected to do pick a dissertation topic that combines these two areas.

Can anyone give me any pointers?

I'm interested in domestic violence and sexual violence against women but unsure how to work this into a dissertation topic.

Any help gratefully recieved.

We have to submit our ideas by the second week of March.

Thanks

Most obviously, you could look into Freud's psychodynamic approach - this looks at the relationship between our parents, our psyche and our development at different stages in young life as why we choose the partners we do and act the way we do towards them.
You could also look at Social Exchange and Equity Theory as to why women stay in abusive relationships - and could also relate to why men abuse.

^These are Psychology based topics but 100% are applicable and mouldable to constructs in society as well as the criminal justice system
