On Transnational Organized Crime:

Globalization has opened world markets to trade and investment, but has also allowed criminal enterprises to build multibillion-dollar empires through money laundering, cyber crime, and the trafficking of human beings, weapons and drugs. The Fall/Winter 2012 issue of the Journal of International Affairs explored this phenomenon from different perspectives to yield insight about how nations can work together and use global governance to curb its rise. The forum provided scholars, authors, policymakers, opinion leaders, and students the opportunity to engage in a discussion on transnational organized crime and the evolving threats to international security, financial markets, development, and human rights worldwide.
