Perspectives on Organised Crime and Terrorism

Course Tutor

Dr Noemie Bouhana (Centre for Security and Crime Science)

This course provides students with an overview and understanding of the phenomenon of organised crime and terrorism, by providing them with an outline of their history, various manifestations (political, social, religious), broader issues of definition and theory. The different ways in which organised crime manifests itself in different countries will be discussed. A number of special topics will also be examined, such as suicide terrorism; terrorism financing; the notion that we are today facing a new type of terrorism; the organised crime aspect of human trafficking; and the role of drug cartels and money laundering, providing students with an up-to-date picture of the terrorist landscape and the pervasive influence of organised crime worldwide.
