HUM 125 International Organized Crime




Course Description

The face of organized crime is culturally and ethnically diverse and is not defined solely by international borders. Examine international organized crime in its geo-political context and as a shadow economy that has evolved in the context of major political, economic and military changes in recent decades. Since smuggling–especially of drugs, guns and people–by definition requires international organized crime, these subjects are discussed. Also review traditional activities of domestic organized crime, such as extortion, prostitution, gambling and money laundering.
