CRIM71-103: Transnational Crime

Description

This subject is anchored in a set of values that explore the notion that crime is everywhere and knows no borders. This subject examines how and what type of criminal acts are occurring and also where this is happening. With the advent of Globalisation, the threat of transnational crime has never been more pressing. The subject will also look at the law enforcement and investigative challenges of the new age international crime types and the attempts to meet these through cooperative cross-national responses. The subject also looks at the cross-national and international efforts of police, courts, international agencies and correctional authorities to deal with these emerging issues. Further, the subject examines the challenges presented by transnational crime within an international relations context and explores the efforts of diplomacy, at regional and global levels, in dealing with it.
