Is Self-Control Theory Culturally Invariant?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Gottfredson and Hirschi argue that self-control is culturally invariant. A review of the extant literature locates few studies that have tested this claim. We wish to add to the paucity of research that tests the core theoretical propositions of A General Theory of Crime outside North America to determine whether self-control is, indeed, a robust explanation of deviance across different cultures. Moreover, the study will draw samples from often-neglected populations in criminology, such as those from Caribbean and Mediterranean nations.
