Inhoud
Theme: Prohibited cross-border economic activities
This criminology course focuses on organised crime and its international aspects.
Economic and technological globalisation has also led to a globalisation of organised crime and, increasingly, to an international response to it. The purpose of the course is to familiarise students with organised crime theory in an international context and to focus in particular on diverse forms of smuggling, like trafficking in hazardous waste, animals, arms, drugs, human beings, body parts etcetera. The course examines the antecedents for contemporary transnational organised crime; how new opportunities have opened up; and the different means that national and international organisations have employed to match the inventiveness and adaptability of the sophisticated criminal organisation. In order to familiarize students with the multidimensionality of these problems, professional experts in this field will lecture on various practical aspects. Students are required to participate in a practical research and write a paper about the results of their research.

Not possible in combination with RGBOI0450 International Organised Crime.

Place of the course within the curriculum:
  • Optional course in the minor Criminology
  • Optional non-legal course
