In the globalized world an extensive process of international migration has developed. The resulting conundrum of issues when examining crime and migration makes for a bitterly complex and intriguing set of debates. In this compelling account, Dario Melossi provides an authoritative take on the theory and research examining the connection of crime, migration and punishment.

This book considers multinational systemic crime - crimes by various kinds of organizations that operate across national boundaries and in two or more countries simultaneously. This concept refers to a variety of criminal behaviour systems including, but not limited to, the four crimes examined in this volume: terrorism, espionage, drug and arms trafficking.

Genre: Social Science

How do democratic values and institutions impact upon crime and justice? With civic values promoted in rehabilitation programmes, civil society emphasised by the government as a crime prevention strategy, and the democratic accountability of policing often at the forefront of the political agenda, an understanding of democracy can illuminate key issues in criminology and criminal justice in new and thought-provoking ways. Providing a systematic and accessible analysis of the relationship between our democratic values and how crime and justice is played out in both national and international arenas, Susanne Karstedt forges new interdisciplinary links between political science and criminology. The book opens new debates in a plethora of areas from terrorism, violent crime, and corruption, to citizenship, the death penalty and punitiveness. Written for advanced students in criminology, politics, international relations and sociology, this is a compelling text on a growing area of criminological study.
