CONTEMPORARY DEVELOPMENTS IN SOCIAL LEARNING THEORY IN CRIMINOLOGICAL RESEARCH AND ITS POSSIBLE USE IN TURKISH CRIMINOLOGICAL RESEARCH

Abstract

Author(s): Serkan TASGIN

Crime theories are mostly used in criminological studies which are developed in the 20th century such as social disorganization theory in 1920s, social learning theory in 1960s and life course theory in 1980s. Therefore, researchers using crime theories on juvenile delinquency may contend that nothing new in the explanation of crime and delinquency over the past thirty years. In addressing this comment, social learning theory was selected and different works were identified. Examination of these works shows that there are new developments in the social learning theory in the area of crime and delinquency which are congruent with the findings of qualitative interviews of 30 incarcerated youth in Turkey in Tasgin’s (2012) study.
