This edited volume contains ten peer-reviewed papers originally prepared for the Fourth Colloquium on Cross-border Crime, held at the Institute of Criminology at the Faculty of Law, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, in October 2002.
Petrus van Duyne examines the organized-crime debate in the Netherlands. Tom Vander Beken and Melanie Defruytier present the risk-assessment approach to the analysis of organized crime. Klaus von Lampe critically reviews the risk-based methodology and the 'organized crime potential' as two current approaches to the assessment and measurement of organized crime. Vesna Nikolic-Ristanovic combines a global and a local perspective in the discussion of human trafficking in the Balkan countries. Miroslav Scheinost presents preliminary findings from a study on financial crime in the Czech Republic. Marinos Diamantides calls for a philosophical, religiously neutral discourse of ethics in the debate on terrorism. Nina Persak identifies the weaknesses and limitations of attempts to pursue security without due consideration of civil liberties in the 'War on Terrorism'. James Newell examines the circumstances favoring the adoption of anti-corruption strategies in the case of Italy. Matjaz Jager discusses the principal-agent-client model as a conceptual foundation of corruption. Katja Sugman provides a critical analysis of Corpus Juris and the 'Green paper on protection of the financial interests of the Community and the establishment of a European Prosecutor' from a Slovenian perspective.
