Content

This unit introduces students to a range of theoretical and applied material on cross-cultural, transnational and international criminology. The problems of transnational and international crime are issues for all nations. Historically, most crime control debates focus on the national rather than transnational or international problems. This dilemma is particularly evident in the prosecution of foreign nationals in culturally distinct justice systems. The concept of global justice is framed within the growing concern about transnational crime, and the lack of discrete institutions to deal with these problems. The unit aims to encourage students to think critically about whether current arrangements for dealing with transnational crime are adequate, and to propose new models designed to resolve these problems. It draws on a combination of databases, policy documents, legal cases and empirical studies.
