This unit examines terrorism and transnational crime and the relationship between them; the history and forms of terrorism and transnational crime; and the administration of security in response to terrorism and transnational crime in Australia and internationally. It deals with these issues in relation to the law, risk, intelligence and the nature of security in an age of uncertainty. The unit examines important conceptual and practical issues concerning the ways in which we can minimise the risk of terrorism and transnational crime, but asks you to think critically about the different costs and benefits associated with our attempts to increase security.
