All students have to participate weekly in the Discussion Forum on Blackboard. This Forum will encourage students to
reflect on questions of methodology and research design based on readings assigned each week. Posts should use formal
English and correct grammar (rubrics will be available for further guidance). Your posts should include justifications for
arguments and employ scholarly evidence, such as citations whenever appropriate. Posts are due on Sunday evenings
by 11:55pm of the week in which they are due.
All students have to comment on at least one other student’s initial post. These replies or comments are due no later
than Saturday by 11:55pm of the week in which they are due. Replies that simply indicate agreement will not count.
Replies must provide thoughtful feedback or ask questions. Remember that the purpose of the Discussion forum is to
interact and have a discussion of the course material.
Question –
Reflect on ways in which we could measure “police abuse of force” in a cross-country comparative research design. When doing this reflection, make sure that you explain the process of “operationalization”. When you are done posting your answer, make sure to comment/reflect on your peers’ postings.

The objective of this assignment is for you to reflect on the challenges of measurement when conducting international and comparative criminal research and demonstrate understanding of the process of measurement with an example that shows how to “operationalize” a concept.
