This timely book provides a critical consideration of one of the most pressing
matters confronting global and regional strategies for suppressing transnational
organized crime today: the question of the scope and rationale of States’ criminal
jurisdiction over these cross-border offences. It shines a light on the complex
challenges posed by transnational organized crime to international criminal law.
Exploring the links between armed conflict and transnational crime, Florian Weigand builds on in-depth empirical research into some of Southeast Asia’s murkiest borders. The disparate voices of drug traffickers, rebel fighters, government officials and victims of armed conflict are heard in Conflict and Transnational Crime, exploring perspectives that have been previously disregarded in understanding the field.
