Course Details: 

Governments and international organizations regard transnational organized crime (including terrorism) as a principal security threat of the 21st Century. This course will examine both the institutional and legal framework for combating this threat in the framework of the global economic transactions and capital flows. Topics to be addressed include institutional structures against corruption, human trafficking, narcotics, asset forfeiture, tax evasion through the use of offshore tax havens, and illegal weapons exports; the character of the global legal regime and the role of international institutions and standards, and the involvement of private service providers.
