About this Lecture


In this lecture, we think about recent developments in transnational crime, focusing in particular on: (i) the growth of anti-terrorism as a priority for transnational policing following the September 11th attacks in New York; (ii) the extent to which some of the measures put in place since September 11th might be seen as crimes of domination; (iii) the growth of transnational organised crime and the response of both national and international security agencies, e.g. SOCA in the UK (now the NCA), the UN Convention on Transnational Organised Crime (UNTOC), etc.; (iv) the difficulty of judging the success of measures designed to tackle transnational organised crime; and (v) transnational environmental corporate crime, looking in particular at the case of the multinational Trafigura dumping toxic waste in the Ivory Coast.


In this course, Professor Tanya Wyatt (Northumbria University) explores transnational and environmental crime. In the first lecture, we think about globalisation and the emergence of global crime. In the second lecture, we explore the links between capitalism and crime. In the third lecture, we turn to the development of transnational policing. Next, we look at transitional policing today. In the fifth lecture, we begin to explore the concept of green criminology. In the sixth and final lecture, we 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.
