J.J.M. van Dijk, R.M. Letschert

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


The various chapters in this book can be read as examples of the blatantly unjust sides of globalization. They testify how processes of globalization are producing increasing numbers of victims of old and new forms of transnational or international crimes. Due to increased mobility and the use of internet, residents of one country can more easily than ever before victimize residents in other countries. New faces of criminal victimhood include victims of human trafficking, international terrorism, transnational organized crime, cross-border environmental crimes, internet-based identity theft, cyberstalking and misconduct by private military companies. The authors have addressed the grave consequences of these crimes.keywordsorganize crimehuman traffickinginternational criminalrome statuteinternational crimethese keywords were added by machine and not by the authors.
