There is no doubt that globalisation has profound effects on crime, justice and our feelings of security, identity and belonging. Many of these affect both the making of laws and the breaking of laws. It has been argued however that criminology has been too provincial, focusing as it often does on national laws and issues, whilst others have said that globalisation is the stuff of international relations, global finance and trade, not of criminology. This book disputes this by asserting that criminology has a firm place in this arena and globalisation offers the discipline a challenge that it should relish.
Some of the field’s top scholars from the UK, the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand consider these challenges and present cutting-edge analysis and debate. Topics covered include transnational organised crime, international policing and a range of other issues involving global harm such as genocide, the workings of international financial institutions, the fate of international migrants and the impact of anti-immigration sentiments in Europe. A particular focus is on borders and arrangements that deal with migration and populations that are excluded and adrift.
This book highlights criminology’s analysis and engagement in new understandings of globalisation, in particular its harmful and unethical manifestations, and offers a mode of scrutiny and vigilance. Globalisation and the Challenge to Criminology will be of particular interest to those studying criminology, criminal justice, policing, security and international relations as well as those who seek to understand globalisation and, in particular, its harmful outcomes.

Francis Pakes is Director of the Research Centre for Comparative and International Criminology at the University of Portsmouth. His more recent work has a strong focus of the nature of globalisation, and its consequences for crime and justice in general and for criminology in particular. He is a former treasurer of the British Society for Criminology and has also published on the intersections of psychology, mental health and criminal justice.Review:
"His collection inclues contributions from leading scholars covering a diverse range of criminological issues including organisec crime, international finance, terrorism, migration and genocide. The collection draws out some of the contradictions and conflicts inherent in globalisation. In particular, the collection is premised upon the basis that globalised practices have not swept aside all that has gone before but instead they co-exist alongside and intersect with deeply held local practices and cultures. The book... provides a useful overview of some key areas."― Dr Jamie Bennett, Prison Service Journal
