Criminal justice systems are increasingly looking for new and innovative ways to combat the spread and impact of crime, which has been intensified by globalization. Uniquely combining the fields of international crime and justice with global affairs, the track examines issues related to transnational crime, international relations, and domestic and international justice and law. Furthermore, and recognizing the importance of utilizing technical tools to analyze crime and criminal networks as well as the emerging cyber domain, the track focuses on mapping, GIS, and cybercrime-related issues.
