The course comes within the framework of the current debate on Crime, Order and policing as well as knowledge of security from trans-national problems of international cooperation and their impact.

Overall, the programme examines the sociology of crime and order and the dynamics of international Security in the contemporary global system. The course addresses question such as the rise of Terrorism as a post-cold war global dilemma and the manifestation of diverse crime structures and representations as well as global cooperation through international organizations and management of security missions. The programme aims to create a forum for international and particularly an African approach to research, management and policy to crime, order and security management by developing and strengthening partnership in academic and institutional research, policy and innovative approach to Criminology and Security Management as issues of international humanitarian concern.

The course aims to examine the trajectories of contemporary global crime and police culture by focusing on different concepts of crime and order in the Post-Cold War World and to build students with the critical skills and ability about the nature of contemporary security relations especially after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the US. The course involves more than local, national and inter-states collaboration to combat crime and manage trans-border security issues; it includes a critical analysis of the underlying political, economic, social and environmental sources of crime and the responses to it and the links to security management through empirical analysis.
