Organised and Financial Crime (6 ECTS)
When: Block 1 + 2
Brief course description:
This course explores different types of criminal activity, all involving an organised and/or financial aspect and often transcending domestic borders. The analyses of different crimes rely on the study of international and domestic legislation as well as on relevant case law. Far from remaining purely theoretical, the course identifies the challenges this type of crime raises for individual states, and for the international community as a whole, both in terms of prevention and of punishment, and assesses the viability and efficiency of the legal responses adopted so far. A number of guest lectures will be given by legal practitioners working in this field of law.
This course includes analyses of the following organised and financial crimes: terrorism, drug trafficking, human trafficking, corruption and money laundering.
Teaching method: Lectures, in-class discussions.
Assessment: Written exam (essay questions). Essay exam. Resit will be written or oral depending on the number of participants
*Official course information and schedules during the academic year can be found in Ocasys.
