This comprehensive encyclopedia covers transnational crimes that take place in one country with consequences that significantly affect other countries, such as human trafficking, smuggling (arms, drugs, and currency), terrorism, and financial crimes. Such crimes are generally carried out by organized crime syndicates, some of which cooperate with terrorist groups. Transnational justice—which is applicable to counterterrorism legal instruments—is also covered among the volume’s more than 150 entries.
