Though you wouldn’t necessarily know it based on recent history, I have traditionally paid considerable attention to international criminal justice issues.
Most often my work focused on transnational organized crime (especially illicit trades and related money laundering) with a bit of research into law enforcement and other forms of social control. For seven summers beginning in the 1990s, I had the fortunate opportunity to study and teach at Leiden University in The Netherlands.
Those experiences – the lessons learned and relationships formed – continue to influence much of my work. Interested parties may wish to consult the following:
