Samantha Hauptman and Magda Maszczynska
Drops in Fall 2019
(however, the limited first edition will be available to the CSI2019 participants)
We wrote this fabulous book covering all the CSI2019 topics. We thought it would be a good idea to use it as a textbook for this training programme.
The final cover is currently under design, however we would like to give you a sneak peek:
This book will be written to explore the changing nature of government and law enforcement’s response to 21st century globalization in the era of terrorism and increased migration. In order to effectively respond to global concerns and pressures that are evident in contemporary society, we must address the growing need for a better understanding of and necessity for a holistic and cooperative approach to the security of the state by exploring the relevant areas of criminology, sociology, psychology and international relations. It is imperative to engage several academic disciplines in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of the challenging dynamics and “new normal” in our XXI century globalized world. Therefore, a thorough analysis of the historical, cultural, political and criminal characteristics of a globalized environment, including issues such as terrorism, migration, moral panics, and transnational organized crime, will be examined from an international perspective, providing solid grounds for a comparative analysis and opening the door for a new, theoretically based and more strategic security agenda.
The purpose of this text is to comprehensively investigate the changing nature of government, social, and law enforcement’s response to 21st century globalization in the era of terrorism and increased migration. As global concerns and pressures have involved in contemporary society, we posit that addressing the growing need for a better understanding of and necessity for a holistic and cooperative approach to the security of the state is necessary.To achieve this end, we must include a broad range of subjects such as criminology, sociology, psychology and international relations, in order to find an effective response to the challenging dynamics of a globalized world and to meet the needs of XXI century social and security problems.
The text will breach the often one-dimensional, traditional approaches to modern social and security challenges like immigration and terrorism by taking an interdisciplinary, more practical yet theoretically based approach to these issues. We will also include comparative analyses between current EU and US practices. We therefore advocate that the text is expansive and both conceptual and practical in that the interdisciplinary approach will bring several relevant academic disciplines together and also marry academic and practical application approaches to these 21st century issues. The text will be cutting edge in is methods which can potentially enable new partnerships, solutions and tactics that may better address the current dilemma of migration, terrorism, and transnational organized crime in the XXI century.
