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.

Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery Law and Practice is a concise, practical, guide to modern slavery and human trafficking law and procedure, in a step by step format, covering all aspects of representing victims of human trafficking and the law surrounding this. Its cross-discipline approach offers practical guidance for criminal and immigration practitioners unfamiliar with each side of these practice areas.
Covers the following areas:
Introduction – legal background, framework, domestic and international;
Definition of a trafficking victim;
Determination of status as a victim of trafficking;
Criminal – non punishment etc;
Criminal – victim protection etc;
Trafficking and the European Convention on Human Rights;
Relevance of NRM decisions and interplay with the international protection/immigration claim/deportation etc.
Covers the following legislation and case law:
The Modern Slavery Act 2015
Palermo Protocol 2000
Refugee Convention on Human Rights 1951
A large number of cases involving victims of trafficking have gone through the appeal courts in recent years. Despite the Court of Appeal in those cases heavily criticising police, prosecutors and defence lawyers who failed to identify and act upon claims of trafficking, victims are still slipping through the net and being convicted when they should not be. All practitioners who work in the field of modern slavery and human trafficking will know there is a hybrid of legal issues for any one case and practitioners will need to be alive to all legal issues.
This book aims to be a concise, manageable text for criminal and immigration practitioners alike and acts as a quick reference source for use by practitioners at court and at all stages through the justice and immigration system, as well as having appeal to the judiciary, students, academics and law enforcement agencies.

Faking it to the Next Level: Are Deep Fakes Threatening Our Democratic Society?
On 31st July 2018, Facebook has posted an article in its Newsroom explaining how the platform is being used to manipulate the Facebook-community. 32 pages have been removed by Facebook and Instagram because they were found to be “involved in coordinated inauthentic behavior.” The manipulation of digital video and audio files, has become increasingly sophisticated and accessible. While the world is more or less accustomed to the idea of image manipulation through ‘photoshopping’, video or audio files that present people saying of doing things they never did nor said, pose a new kind of challenge to democracies and national security. Audio and video manipulation then enter a realm that is generally described as ‘deep fake’.Read more
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

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
Victor Bout, arms dealer, extradited to USA

Call for an UN Piracy Tribunal
