Cooperation in transnational crime prevention

Chapter


Abstract


  • Theories of globalisation point to the increased linkage

    of human communities and an expansion in the reach

    of power relations. They stress the intersections of

    economic, military, legal, ecological, cultural and

    social activities. Benefits of globalisation are, however,

    uneven. The deepening, widening and speeding

    up of connections provides opportunities for some

    individuals and companies to profit through commerce.

    At the same time, moving to an interconnected global

    system of law enforcement has proven to be more

    difficult, as states remain rooted to their territories

    and the exercise of authority over citizens. Between

    the supposed emergence of a global society and the

    entrenched nation-state exist opportunities to exploit

    differences in capacity in law enforcement. This case

    addresses the phenomenon of transnational organised

    <;rime in the Asia-Pacific region, and describes what is

    being done to promote international legal cooperation

    in the trafficking of drugs and people.
