Title: A Reassessment of the Role of Offender Risk in Criminal Decision-Making
Lead Author: Loughran, Thomas A
Abstract: The study of offender decision-making in criminology is highly important to theoretical concepts of deterrence as well as practical policies aimed at deterring past and future offenders from engaging in criminal activities. Most of the criminological literature on decision-making has aimed to study offender risk perceptions, but has had a somewhat narrow focus in how risk is likely processed by offenders. Recent findings however, have sought to expand this previous treatment of the concept of offender risk. This paper reviews key recent findings on this topic, and outlines some key research questions which invite a multi-disciplinary approach for a future scholarship in this area.
