You are to go through the FAU Library CJ abstracts to identify 5 peer reviewed journal articles (between 2016-2020) that provide analysis of corporate crime, state-corporate crime, state crime (hint you can also go to the journals directly through FAU library journal search site such as critical criminology, contemporary justice review, social justice, the British journal of Criminology, etc. and search within them using key words). Select the articles to read. However, do not use all corporate crimes or state crimes, etc., there should be at least 2 different types that you have learned. Do not use occupational crimes. You should not repeat the articles, rather summarize each, note and assess the method used (if stated), the theory used by the author and the author’s argument. DO NOT merely copy the abstract.
