Global Criminology explores the relationship between globalisation, crime and justice. It examines the current processes for administering justice in light of the tensions between sovereignty, the problems of transnational crime and the prevailing structure of international law.

The new text examines the importance of comparative justice as a means of enhancing greater cooperation on significant transnational crime problems; and emphasises the centrality of rights, fairness and consistency in generating sound conceptions of justice, in a context where multiple forms of jurisdiction often lead to political and diplomatic solutions to transnational crime problems that are immune to independent legal scrutiny. Contradictions between prevailing notions of state sovereignty, globalisation and recent criminological trends in securitisation stress the importance of comparative research in developing future global justice initiatives.

Numerous examples illustrate the tensions between state sovereignty, current international criminal justice mechanisms and the problem of transnational crime.
