Overview

Comparative and International Policing, Justice, and Transnational Crime provides a rich reservoir of thought-provoking original articles written by international criminal justice, policing, and legal scholars. Many of the articles not only share a central theme (e.g., the policing of dependent sovereignties) but also focus on how various issues are addressed by international treaties and policing or law enforcement agencies. The articles are drawn from historical, contemporary, and controversial topics. The main objectives are to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of various international issues, from historical to contemporary perspectives; incorporate topics that are important, yet ignored in many international criminal justice books; and generate scholarly discussion among students. Chapter 1 introduces students to various theories of justice and international law, which is crucial to understanding the moral foundation of international law and how fairness and justice are part of international law. Chapters 2 and 3 provide readers with critical, yet rarely discussed topics such as regulatory agencies, treaties, and sanctions (the new sovereignty) and extra-judicial renditions (sovereign lawlessness); The role of international justice and law enforcement organizations and important topics of policing of American Indians (subordinate sovereignties) and aboriginal population in Canada are included. Students are also introduced to the principle of jus cogens (a body of fundamental norms of international law that applies to all states) and discusses how this concept is related to the universal jurisdiction. Specific jus cogens crimes such as human trafficking, slavery and bonded labor, maritime piracy, and crimes against humanity are discussed. Important human rights issues, including genocide and the human rights violations of minorities in Europe (Roma) and India (Dalits) are high-lighted. Not only specific international crimes such as terrorism, drug trafficking, cyber crime, hijacking, environmental crimes, crimes against cultural heritage are discussed, but the international response in terms of laws, treaties, and policing are also emphasized.
