Combating Human Trafficking Through Transnational Law Enforcement Cooperation: The Case of South Eastern Europe
Book: Policing Across Borders
This study aims at analyzing one of the most challenging elements of the international community’s efforts to combat the grave societal problem of human trafficking. It examines the problem through the lenses of the New Haven School of Jurisprudence. Thematically, this study focuses on substantive and procedural issues of international cooperation in criminal matters, concentrating on the transnational organized crime of trafficking in human beings. Geographically, the study investigates the prospects for such cooperation through showcasing some countries in the region of South Eastern Europe. The methodology employed helps to delimit the problem of transnational crime, cooperation in criminal matters, or lack thereof; it identifies the conflicting claims and lays out past trends in decision, actual agreements, and instances of cooperation, to be followed by the projection of future trends. The study concludes with an appraisal of past practices and recommends better approaches to the problem, in order to enhance the prospects for a world public order of human dignity in this field.
