Question Description

In this Final Project, you will focus on examining global criminal activity by creating a comparative justice systems classification strategy. The activities completed throughout the course have provided you with knowledge of the various types of laws, criminal justice systems, and criminal activities that occur across the world. Additionally, you have learned about the cultures and processes of the courts, policing and investigative agencies, and corrections in countries worldwide. You will compare, contrast, examine, and classify each country’s criminal justice system, including key cultures and processes in policing, corrections, investigative agencies, and the courts. You will also make recommendations for improvements to these systems within the United States based on what has proven successful for other countries. You will evaluate the global criminal activity and criminal justice systems in each country; analyze the differing cultural perspectives on policing, courts, and corrections in each country; evaluate the international policing and investigative agencies; and, lastly, compile all of this information by creating a comparative justice classification strategy.

First, select two countries from this list:

  • Argentina
  • Australia
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • China
  • England and Wales
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Ghana
  • Great Britain
  • India
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Mexico
  • New Zealand
  • Nigeria
  • North Korea
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Russia
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Scotland
  • Somalia
  • South Africa
  • South Korea
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Venezuela
  • Vietnam

Then, compare and contrast the court system, policing, corrections, and investigative agencies in these countries with those of the United States. This should be accomplished by creating a table in landscape format using either Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. Column headings should include courts, policing/law enforcement, corrections, and investigative agencies. Remember to include your cited resources in correct APA format whether in the table or written portion of the assignment.

In the essay portion of your Final Project, create your assignment based on the information you reviewed when comparing and contrasting the United States with the two countries you chose. In your paper

  • Provide at least one recommendation for improvement to the United States criminal justice system for each of the following:
    • Court system
    • Policing
    • Corrections
    • Investigative agencies
  • Provide a rationale, with supporting resources, for the reasons you are recommending these changes to the United States criminal justice system.
  • Evaluate the criminal justice systems by examining the global criminal activity in the two countries you chose.
  • Analyze the differing cultural perspectives on policing, courts, and corrections of your chosen countries.
  • Evaluate international policing and investigative agencies while creating this comparative justice classification strategy.

The Final Project

  • Must be at least 10 double-spaced pages in length (not including title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..
  • Must include a separate title page with the following:
    • Title of paper
    • Student’s name
    • Course name and number
    • Instructor’s name
    • Date submitted
  • Must use at least nine credible sources in addition to the course text

Comparative Justice Systems Classification analysis



The Norwegian court system is
comprised of three main
courts; The county or district
courts, The crown court or the
high court and the Supreme
court (Eng, 2016). The
Supreme Court handles issues
relating to criminal law, civil
law, constitutional law, and
administrative law. The king
appoints the judges following
their referral by the Ministry
of Justice. There is also a court
of appeal handles appeals from
county or district courts (Eng,
2016). These district courts
are the first instance courts.
The judges are responsible for
determining questions of
punishment and guilt in cases
brought to them. Cases of
grave nature are forwarded to
the high court directly. Some
serious cases require the
formation of a 10 member jury
to determine guilt. An
essential principle in
Norwegian justice is that the
defendant’s peers are used to
determine questions of guilt
(Eng, 2016). There are also
special tribunals established to
adjudicate on specific issues
like labor disputes, land cases
or social security issues. The
court and justice system In
Norway follows the
constitutional provisions.


In Saudi Arabia, sharia courts
have the mandate to rule over
most criminal cases. Notably,
both summary and general
courts deal with small cases in
such a way that they are
adjudicated by a single judge.

Policing/ Law
The main body tasked
with law enforcement is
the National Police
which includes several
adjoined agencies
(Das, & Robinson,
2001). These agencies
offer support to the
local police. The Police
service that consists of
27 police districts
operates under Ministry
of Justice and the
Police (Das, &
Robinson, 2001).
Each district is headed
by a chief of police
who is in charge of all
policing in the districts.
The national police are
independent of the
military police that is
small and effective.
The police are in
charge of maintaining
law and order,
investigation offenders
and prosecuting them
(Das, & Robinson,
2001). The Police are
among the best in the
world in terms of
efficiency and integrity.

Importantly, there are also
non-sharia courts whose main
focus is to cover other
specialized areas. Some of
these areas include a
specialized criminal court, the
Supreme Court and the
grievances board. Initially, the
board of grievances was aimed
at dealing with complaints
concerning the government but
later gained the power to carry
