La notion de "criminalité transnationale", d'un point de vue criminologique, date du milieu des années soixante-dix lorsque les États-Unis ont utilisé ce terme pour désigner certaines activités criminelles qui transcendent les juridictions nationales. En 1995, les Nations Unies ont identifié dix-huit catégories d'infractions transnationales - la plupart relevant de la criminalité organisée. La criminalité organisée était alors définie comme "les infractions dont le commencement, la prévention et/ou les effets directs ou indirects impliquent plus d'un seul pays." (UN Doc. A.CONF. 169/15/Add.1 (1995)). Les infractions énumérées comprenaient le faux monnayage, les activités terroristes, le vol d'œuvres d'art et d'objets culturels, le vol de propriété intellectuelle, le trafic d'armes illégal, la piraterie aérienne, la piraterie maritime, la fraude à l'assurance, la criminalité informatique, la criminalité environnementale, le trafic d'êtres humains, le commerce d'organes humains, le trafic illégal de drogue, la banqueroute frauduleuse, l'infiltration dans des activités légales, la corruption d'agents publics ou de membres de partis politiques. La criminalité transnationale s'est étendue de manière exponentielle avec le développement de la mondialisation et ce n'est que de manière relativement récente que certains progrès ont été réalisés par les États et les organisations internationales pour développer des mesures de lutte contre ce type de criminalité.

Histories of Transnational Crime provides a broad, historical framework for understanding the developments in research of transnational crime over the centuries. This volume provides examples of transnational crime, and places them in a broad historical context, which has so far been missing from this field of study. The contributions to this comprehensive volume explore the causes and historical precursors of six main types of transnational crime: -piracy -human smuggling -arms trafficking -drug trafficking -art and antique trafficking -corporate crime. The historical contributions demonstrate that transnational crime is not a novel phenomenon of recent globalization and that, beyond organized crime groups, powerful individuals, governments and business corporations have been heavily involved. Through a systematic historical and contextual analysis of these types of transnational crime, the contributions to this volume provide a fundamental understanding of why and how various forms of transnational crime are still present in the contemporary world. In the past two decades, the study of transnational crime has developed from a subset of the study of organized crime to its own recognized field of study, covering distinct societal threats and requiring a particular approach.

This book addresses immensely consequential crimes in the world today that, to date, have been almost wholly neglected by students of crime and criminal justice: crimes of globalization. This term refers to the hugely harmful consequences of the policies and practices of international financial institutions – principally in the global South. A case is made for characterizing these policies and practices specifically as crime. Although there is now a substantial criminological literature on transnational crimes, crimes of states and state-corporate crimes, crimes of globalization intersect with, but are not synonymous with, these crimes. Identifying specific reasons why students of crime and criminal justice should have an interest in this topic, this text also identifies underlying assumptions, defines key terms, and situates crimes of globalization within the criminological enterprise. The authors also define crimes of globalization and review the literature to date on the topic; review the current forms of crimes of globalization; outline an integrated theory of crimes of globalization; and identify the challenges of controlling the international financial institutions that perpetrate crimes of globalization, including the role of an emerging Global Justice Movement. The authors of this book have published widely on white collar crime, crimes of states, state-corporate crime and related topics. This book will be essential reading for academics and students of crime and criminal justice who, the authors argue, need to attend to emerging forms of crime that arise specifically out of the conditions of globalization in our increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.

The book consists of the keynote papers delivered at the 2012 WG Hart Workshop on Globalisation, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice organised by the Queen Mary Criminal Justice Centre. The volume addresses from a cross-disciplinary perspective the multifarious relationship between globalisation on the one hand, and criminal law and justice on the other hand. At a time when economic, political and cultural systems across different jurisdictions are increasingly becoming or are perceived to be parts of a coherent global whole, it appears that the study of crime and criminal justice policies and practices can no longer be restricted within the boundaries of individual nation-states or even particular transnational regions. But in which specific fields, to what extent, and in what ways does globalisation influence crime and criminal justice in disparate jurisdictions? Which are the factors that facilitate or prevent such influence at a domestic and/or regional level? And how does or should scholarly inquiry explore these themes? These are all key questions which are addressed by the contributors to the volume. In addition to contributions focusing on theoretical and comparative dimensions of globalisation in criminal law and justice, the volume includes sections focusing on the role of evidence in the development of criminal justice policy, the development of European criminal law and its relationship with national and transnational legal orders, and the influence of globalisation on the interplay between criminal and administrative law.

While the success of national and international law enforcement cooperation to suppress organized crime means that stable, large-scale criminal organizations like the Cosa Nostra or the Japanese Yakuza have seen their power reduced, organized crime remains a concern for many governments. Economic globalization and the easing of restrictions on exchanges across borders now provide ample opportunity for money-making activities in illegal markets. Policies designed to stop illegal market flows often shift these activities to new places or create new problems, as the U.S.- led war on drugs spread production and trafficking to a number South and Central American countries. The Oxford Handbook of Organized Crime provides informed, authoritative, and comprehensive overviews of these issues and other principal forms of organized crime, as well as the type and effectiveness of efforts to prevent and control them.

Certain types of crime are increasingly being perpetrated across national borders and require a unified regional or global response to combat them. Transnational criminal law covers both the international treaty obligations which require States to introduce specific substantive measures into their domestic criminal law schemes, and an allied procedural dimension concerned with the articulation of inter-state cooperation in pursuit of the alleged transnational criminal. The Routledge Handbook of Transnational Criminal Law provides a comprehensive overview of the system which is designed to regulate cross border crime. The book looks at the history and development of the system, asking questions as to the principal purpose and effectiveness of transnational criminal law as it currently stands. The book brings together experts in the field, both scholars and practitioners, in order to offer original and forward-looking analyses of the key elements of the transnational criminal law. The book is split into several parts for ease of reference: Fundamental concepts surrounding the international regulation of transnational crime; Procedures for international cooperation against alleged transnational criminals including jurisdiction, police cooperation, asset recovery and extradition; Substantive crimes covered by transnational criminal law analysing the current legal provisions for each crime; The implementation of transnational criminal law and the effectiveness of the system of transnational criminal law.
Battersby, P., The Unlawful Society: Global Crime and Security in a Complex World, Basingstoke, Palgrave Macmillan, 2014View this title in our link resolver Plinklet
Crime today is synonymous with security but our preoccupation with exposing the hidden mechanisms of the global underworld engenders an incomplete understanding of a vexed and complex field of inquiry, policy and practice. International and global relations are being refashioned and re-coded in ways that demand a fresh and expansive interpretation that acknowledges the scope and complexity of networked human interactions. Using the innovative concept of unlawfulness, this book examines the crimes and misdemeanours of the global overworld to form a unique analysis of global order in the twenty-first century. Battersby argues that unlawfulness - the intentional transgression of criminal law - is an active but under-researched principle in international affairs, and maps out the scope of tolerated unlawfulness among and within states and non-state actors including private companies and not-for-profit 'civil society' organizations. Exploring the dynamics of law-making in a world where the pace of technological change is outstripping our capacity to capture new forms of international and transnational crime, this book will be a valuable resource to scholars of International Politics, Global Governance, International Law, Security, Criminal Justice and Policing.

Hide & Seek in the Art World
When we look at a piece of art, we enter the secret world of art. When we buy a piece of art, we enter the secret world of the art market. When anonymity in the art market is about protecting privacy, it’s a legitimate ground for secrecy. When secrecy paints a picture of a thinly regulated art trade where anonymity is used as playground to shield all kinds of doubtful behaviour and ownership, it is questionable. Law firms play a crucial role in this questionable secrecy in art market. Those law firms service their clients by incorporating and operating shell companies in ‘friendly’ jurisdictions and perform money laundering services as their core business. Law firms boost their client’s assets and inject them into the legal economy, through different money laundering schemes.Read more
Honduras: A New Cocaine Trafficking Hub
Last week Honduras adopted a law allowing the government to shoot down planes suspected of trafficking illegal drugs through the country. International drug trafficking is probably the most well known transnational organized crime. How bad is the current situation in Honduras; is it a new cocaine trafficking hub?Read more
Protecting Children from Cybercrime: Online Child Grooming
In the Netherlands a massive case of internet child abuse has been reveiled this week. A 48 year old man has been arrested and is suspected of online child grooming and sexually abusing hundreds of girls. At least 11 girls stated they have had a meeting with the man and were sexually abused by him. The Dutch police has found 26.000 videos and 144.000 photographs during a raid on his house. The man has been active for eight years. What is online child grooming and what is the International and European policy on combating this form of cyber crime and internet abuse?Read more
Pirates, Buccaneers and Privateers : Concepts of International Law.
Establishing an authoritative definition of “piracy” in international law has always been rather problematic. The definition is relevant, because any confusion in terminology invariably leads to debates between State sovereignty and universal jurisdiction over crimes at sea. The various international law meanings of piracy are derived from, among others, international treaties, and various municipal law meanings are defined by statutes and State practice.Read more
