Global Policing and Transnational Law Enforcement

Global Policing and Transnational Law Enforcement

Four Volume Set
Edited by:

September 2015 | 1 408 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

The study of policing and law enforcement practices that transcend national boundaries has become a vibrant and growing area of interest for police studies, criminology, sociology, political science, international relations and law. The aim of this SAGE major work is to set out an interdisciplinary theoretical framework, delineate the emerging architecture of transnational policing and provide a comprehensive explanation of the law enforcement, surveillance and other practices involved in the policing of global problems. This collection brings together literature which develops theoretical perspectives on this topic from various disciplines, together with articles presenting empirical case studies illustrating the forms, functions and effects of the new transnational policing. The four volumes also examine the emergence of new forms of policing and explore the theoretical, normative and substantive issues that are emerging in this rapidly developing field.
