CRIM 350 - Transnational Organized Crime

(3cr) This course examines current transnational crime issues and their effect on society. Transnational crime transcends all traditional geographic borders and operates as an international growth industry. The course focuses on some of the main pillars of transnational crime: human trafficking, drug smuggling and the tie to terrorism, money laundering, wildlife trafficking and weapons trafficking. The connection between these illegal activities and state corruption and terrorism will be examined, as well as the growing influence these illicit organizations are having on legitimate businesses and national economies. Finally, the course will explore what is being done globally to combat these issues. Prerequisites: SOCI 203 .
