Globalisation has increased opportunities for the commission and externalisation of crime and harm by organised crime groups, occupational criminals, and corporations. This module introduces students to the study of transnational and global criminology. Students will examine a range of transnational and global crimes and harms committed by powerful actors, including, counterfeiting, trafficking, tax evasion and avoidance, illegal migration, modern slavery and labour exploitation, cybercrime, green crimes, and crimes of government sponsored enterprises and international financial institutions. Students will examine the nexus between these crimes and harms, and their definition and criminalisation under national and international law. In so doing, students will consider the implications of such framing for the policing and regulation of transnational and global crime.
