Jock Young

Jock Young

Jock Young (* 1942) ist ein britischer Soziologe und Kriminologe.

Young war zuerst Soziologie-Professor an der Middlesex University und lehrt heute (2009) an der University of Kent. Ab etwa 1968 gehörte Young zu den wichtigsten Begründern einer marxistisch orientierten Kritischen Kriminologie (der sogenannten „New Criminology“) in Großbritannien, die sich später zu einem sozialdemokratischen Neuen Realismus (left realism) abschwächte. Inzwischen hat sich Young in seinen Forschungen der Cultural Criminology zugewandt.
