1. Global Crime
About this Lecture
In this module, we introduce the concept of global crime, the kind of crime that emerges from an increasingly 'globalised' world. As we move through the module, we consider: (i) the definition of globalisation; (ii) some of the impacts of globalisation; (iii) the connection between globalisation and crime; and (iv) the scale of global crime.
In this course, Professor Tanya Wyatt (Northumbria University) explores transnational and environmental crime. In the first module, we think about globalisation and the emergence of global crime. After that, in the second module, we explore the links between capitalism and crime, before turning in the third and fourth modules to the development of transnational policing. In the fifth module, we begin to explore the concept of green criminology, before turning in the sixth and final module to look at some concrete examples of green crimes.
Dr Tanya Wyatt is a Professor of Criminology specialising in green criminology. Her expertise centres on wildlife crime and trafficking, non-human animal abuse and welfare and the intersections of organised crime, corporate crime, and corruption. Other research interests are crimes of the powerful, particularly industrial agriculture and pollution.
