Organized Crime: A Global Threat

The Holy Spirit University of Kaslik (USEK) organized a national and international Colloquium on “Organized Crime: A Global Threat.”

This event hosted by the Faculty of Law, Department of Criminology, took place on 8 and 9 May, 2015, in the John Paul II Amphitheater.

“Liberty, security, and justice are henceforth determined by organized crimes. The pressure that organized crime exerts on governments is gaining in importance. As a chain reaction, organized crimes are branching out into several others: in addition to trafficking in human beings, trafficking in drugs, firearms trafficking and money-laundering, there are emerging crimes, such as environmental crime, trafficking in fraudulent medicines, organ trafficking, trafficking in cultural property, and cyber-criminality”.

“How firm should the cooperation be between governments to repress and prevent these crimes? Should there be a global approach to organized crime that may be deemed a guide for nations willing to take repressive and preventive measures against organized crimes? The persistence of these questions vouches for the fact that human misery and erratic changes of humanity’s mood get worse. It also testifies to another fact, that the international community’s reaction is lifeless indeed.”
