Aims and objectives

This unit provides students with a detailed understanding of global crime problems that are inherently transnational in nature. Students will learn about the extent, growth and impact of different types of global crimes as well as their systemic enablers, and how to assess and formulate real-world policy solutions.


Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Analyse and evaluate the function, scale and socio-economic impact of global illicit markets, including in people, illicit drugs, arms our counterfeit goods
2. Identify and analyse the systemic enablers of global crime including rapid globalisation and technological change, insufficient oversight and regulatory systems, and corruption within both public and private sectors
3. Analyse and evaluate the nexus between systemic enablers of global crime and key offender groups, including organised crime syndicates, transnational corporations and corrupt government officials
4. Evaluate, formulate and communicate real-world policy solutions to global crime problems including law enforcement and other government responses, both individually and in teams
