Credits: 10
Semester: 2
International: Yes
Coordinator: Dr Rhiannon Bandiera (SCHOOL OF LAW AND CRIMINOLOGY)
Overview Overview

Globalisation, neoliberalisation, and the mobility and performativity borders have increased opportunities for the commission and externalisation of crime and harm by powerful and ‘elite’ actors, including, organised and occupational criminals, corporations, and governments and government-sponsored enterprises. This module provides students with a general introduction to the field of transnational and global criminology. Students will examine a range of transnational and global crimes and harms, including, counterfeiting, trafficking, tax evasion and avoidance, illegal migration, modern slavery and labour exploitation, cybercrime, green crimes, and crimes of international financial institutions. Students will examine critically 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 responding to and preventing transnational and global crime.
