CREDIT HOURS: 3
Since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the relationship between global processes and the issues of crime and terrorism have become more explicit. As new or enhanced global economic, political, cultural and environmental processes facilitate profound social and cultural change, new pressures and opportunities for both traditional and new kinds of crime and various forms of political and religious violence are being created. This course examines how globalization influences the various global and local conditions that create these new kinds crime and terrorism by exploring various theoretical explanations, and more empirically based case studies of different global crimes and terrorism movements. In addition we will explore how global organized crime and terrorism challenges the ability of western societies and states to ensure political order and security and examine how they are reconfiguring both the rhetoric and reality of state governance and justice.
