  • the need for constructive argument with respect to the administration of sentencing and punishment

  • the value of social inquiry and comparative assessment within the theoretical context and application of sentencing

  • the importance and understanding of criminal justice theory within various procedural settings

  • the significance and challenges related to a number of fundamental challenges associated with sentencing

  • the prospective legitimacy of community-based procedures, structures, and due process in relation to criminal justice administration

  • the utility, deficiencies, and alternative ratio
