Transnational Organized Crime

Analyses of a Global Challenge to Democracy
(Conception: Regine Schönenberg and Annette von Schönfeld)

Transnational organized crime interferes with the everyday lives of more and more people – and represents a serious threat to democracy. By now, organized crime has become an inherent feature of economic globalization, and the fine line between the legal and illegal operation of business networks is blurred. Additionally, few experts could claim to have comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the laws and regulations governing the international flow of trade, and hence of the borderline towards criminal transactions.
This book offers contributions from 12 countries around the world authored by 25 experts from a wide range of academic disciplines, representatives from civil society organizations and private industry, journalists, as well as activists. Recognizing the complexity of the issue, this publication provides a cross cultural and multi-disciplinary analysis of transnational organized crime including a historical approach from different regional and cultural contexts.

»Insgesamt vermittelt der Band [...] trotz oder gerade wegen der zahlreichen Perspektiven auf das Thema ein Verständnis für die Vielschichtigkeit des Problems und die Notwendigkeit umfassenderer Ansätze.«
Christian Patz, Portal für Politikwissenschaft, 09.04.2015
»Es ist die nüchterne, wissenschaftliche Analyse und ihre Sprache, die die Problematik so eindringlich präsentiert und beweist, dass die Organisierte Kriminalität weltweit keine marginale Erscheinung ist und konsequentes, gemeinsames Handeln erfordert – auch in Deutschland.«
Europäische Sicherheit & Technik, 3 (2014)
»Das Buch bietet einen guten Einstieg in die Thematik und liest sich sehr abwechslungsreich.«
Alexander Kamprad, http://criminologia.de/www.surveillance-studies.org, 1 (2014)
»The broad range of perspectives and multi-professional approach are refreshing and fit well into the editors mission to focus on features of TOC that are not generally brought into conversation with each other.«
