Content

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