Certain types of crimes are increasingly being perpetrated across national borders and so require a unified regional or global response to combat them.

Transnational criminal law covers both the international treaty obligations which require States to introduce specific substantive measures into their domestic criminal law schemes, and an allied procedural dimension mainly concerned with the articulation of inter-state cooperation in pursuit of the alleged transnational criminal through mutual legal assistance and extradition.

The Routledge Handbook of Transnational Criminal Law provides a comprehensive overview of the system which is designed to regulate cross border crime. The book looks at the history and development of the system asking questions as to the principal purpose and effectiveness of transnational criminal law as it currently stands. The book brings together experts in the field, both scholars and practitioners, in order to offer original and forward-looking analyses of all the key elements of the transnational criminal law.

The book is split into several parts for ease of reference:-

  • Part 1 covers the fundamental concepts surrounding the international regulation of transnational crime. The second part addresses procedure including jurisdiction, police cooperation, asset recovery and extradition.
  • Part 3 considers the different crimes covered by transnational criminal law analysing the current legal provisions for each crime.
  • The fourth and final part analyses the implementation of transnational criminal law and will explore how far legal cooperation can go in the suppression of transnational crime develop at a global level .
  • With chapters from over 25 authorities in the field this handbook will be an invaluable reference work for students and academics as well as policy makers with an interest in transnational crime and criminal law.
