Marcus Felson

Professor Marcus Felson, Texas State University, USA

Marcus Felson has been a leader not only in crime theory ("the routine activity approach") but also in applying that theory to reducing crime. His central argument is that everyday legalĀ  activities set the stage for the illegal activities that feed on them. Before Texas State University, he was professor at the Rutgers University School of Criminal Justice and the University of Illinois and has been Visiting Scholar at the University of Stockholm. He received his B.A. from the University of Chicago and his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. Professor Felson jas been guest lecturer in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, England, Finland, Hungary, Itlay, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Scotlans, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. Author of more than 80 professional papers, including "Redesigning Hell: Preventing Crime and Disorder at the Port Authority Bus Terminal," he is coeditor (with Ronald V. Clarke) of Business Crime and Routine Activitiy and Rational Choice and coauthor of "Opportunity Makes the Thief" .
