This course is an introduction to international crime and international criminal justice. Issues discussed include topics like globalization and globalized crime, international criminal law, international and transnational crimes, contemporary slavery, human smuggling and human trafficking. The course's goals should be viewed in the context of the phenomenon of globalization. An increasing number of people hold the view that because of globalization we cannot afford to ignore what happens in the world outside of the United States, and that knowledge of other cultures - including cultures of law and legal systems - is absolutely crucial in order to be able to meaningfully and respectfully interact with other nations of the world.
