JSB209 Transnational Organised Crime and Terrorism

This unit is designed to provide students with an introduction to transnational and organised crime (TOC) and terrorism. Transnational organised crime has grown exponentially over the past two decades; similarly, terrorist organisations continue to threaten global security. Both criminal groups present an ongoing problem for governments and monarchies globally. While TOC groups benefit from the misfortune of others within the community, terrorists on the other hand seek to undermine the fabric of these communities. Organised crime and terrorist groups have existed for hundreds of years; they will continue to provide a focus for intelligence, security and policing operations for many generations to come. This unit seeks to explore and explain the basic nature of transnational organised crime and terrorism.
