The topic aims to offer students a comprehensive discussion on current issues in international criminal justice, providing a coherent theoretical framework for approaching increasingly prominent discourses and the reality of transnational crime.
The way transnational crime is addressed reflects a dominant western view of law enforcement and human rights. This topic will introduce the concept of transnational moral entrepreneur and will look at how it applies in international debates on forms of transnational crimes. Each week, a different issue in transnational criminal justice is introduced and discussed in depth.
This topic aims to broaden students' understanding of the principles and cases of international criminal justice relevant to globalisation, transnational crime and cooperation among transnational criminal justice actors. Students are required to read broadly and constantly, and to read quality newspapers in order to engage effectively with topic material.
