POL 325 The Politics of Transnational Crime

3 hours 

Transnational crime and violence have become major concerns for governments around the world as they work to stem the flow of drugs, control trade in human beings and deal with the problem of stateless terrorism. In this course, we will study the developing literature on this issue by examining how crime has altered state sovereignty, posed challenges to governance, changed conceptions of human rights and affected international organizations.
