Abstract

The article presents the macro-micro-macro model of social control of deviance, which is based on the methodology of interactionism and constructivism. This model involves the use of a dialectical approach to bring together the complementary concepts of individualism and institutionalism. The author examines a number of issues related to the origins of regulation and social control of deviance. In addition, the author explores possible directions for research on social control of deviance in a constructivist perspective.

Keywords: social control, constructivism, deconstruction, the variability of norms, discourse, deviance reproduction, macro and micro level of social reality, a model of social control, agents of social control, everyday practices.
