Aims, contents and method of the course

This course, offered in conjunction with the universities of Zurich and Queensland explores selected topics relating to transnational crime.
In 2018–19, the focus is on trafficking in fauna and flora: the illegal trade in wildlife, animal parts, and plants. Research topics relate to the phenomenon and criminology, case and country studies, international and domestic law, law enforcement and prevention. This includes, inter alia, the illegal trade in ivory, rhino horn, shark fin, country studies on selected African, Asian, and European countries, analysis of international frameworks and domestic criminal laws and customs regulations.
