General Information


The contemporary justice arena requires significant cooperation between different agencies, Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) and community groups. In this unit you will develop practical strategies to manage communication and collaboration between disparate organisations, enabling them to balance their interests and desired outcomes. You will identify the importance of thorough stakeholder analysis and the inclusion of stakeholders into processes and accountability practices. The concept of public value provides a framework through which you will demonstrate the significance of justice practices to participants and the community at large. You will also develop interpersonal and digital skills to facilitate project management, cultural change and communication in professional networks.

Offerings For Term 2 - 2023


Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Surveys, email


Some students did not like the requirement to engage regularly with the unit and preferred to only engage via end of term assessment.


While we are aware of student needs for flexibility, student expectations will need to be adjusted to accept the unit responsibilities as set in university practice. It needs to be clear that all units require regular engagement throughout the term.

Feedback from Workshop discussions


Students who were engaged really enjoyed the simulation. Aspects of the simulation need to be clearer or explained better.


The simulation allowed students to apply abstract strategic concepts in an authentic, risk-free setting. This version was a prototype and the simulation will be refined for the next offering and explanatory materials will be further clarified.

Feedback from Surveys


A small number of students struggled to see the relevance of strategic planning and negotiation for a criminology graduate


This unit was introduced because external stakeholders emphasised the importance of strategic thinking and action. With the 2023 five year criminology review we will examine the way that professional skills are embedded to ensure a) relevance and b) that this is communicated throughout the whole of course so that students appreciate the linkages between units.
