    Big Bag Ban

    The EU has recently approved tough new measures to slash the use of plastic bags. New targets will force each country to reduce plastic bag use by 80% before 2019. In this activity students examine degradable plastic bags as a possible alternative to ordinary plastic bags. They choose questions to ask experts, and come to a reasoned decision in answer to the dilemma question: will degradable plastic bags solve the problems caused by ordinary plastic bags?

    Criminal Justice in Scotland

    This unit has been created to support and stimulate further debate arising from a seminar on criminal justice in Scotland being hosted by The Open University in Scotland on February 10, 2011. This unit will consider the current state of criminal justice in Scotland and its likely directions following the UK General Election of 2010 and more significantly the Scottish Parliament elections in May 2011. Following the publication in late 2010 of Criminal Justice in Scotland edited by Croall, Mooney and Munro (Willan/Routledge), this unit aims develop thinking around the key themes in the book, namely the relationships between crime, inequalities, criminal and social justice and the distinctiveness or otherwise of Scottish criminal justice. It aims to provide an opportunity for informed debate and discussion about what are the strengths of criminal justice in Scotland ? What are the main problems with it – and what changes are desirable – and achievable?
