    • Abstract:
      In an effort to understand criminal justice education comparatively, we trace the development of the field in India considering both general education and specific job training. We find that there are several key similarities and differences in comparison to the US. After discussing these findings, we raise four questions which emerge from the comparison: the national government's influence over criminal justice education; the gap between academic education and job-related training; the influence of level of economic development on crime-related education; and, the circumstances surrounding the influence of outsiders and outside agencies on criminal justice education.
