This course explores the proliferation of transnational crime and its effect on the integrity of the state. The course consists of four blocks. The first block, Weeks 1 through 5, focuses on the context of the current international system and the tools the state employs to counter transnational crime. The second block, Weeks 6 through 8, focuses on contemporary themes in transnational crime, including the role of the military in criminal law enforcement. Weeks 9 through 12 comprise the third block and complete the foundation of the course. During this block, discussion will center on states and other international actors. The course closes in Weeks 13 and 14, the final block. During Week 13, students will participate in a practical in-class exercise, advocating a state’s interests as they arise in a transnational criminal scenario. During the last week, students will present and discuss their course papers.
