1 TRANSNATIONAL ORGANIZED CRIME Prof. Dr. Andreas Schloenhardt UNIVERSITÄT ZÜRICH, RECHTSWISSENSCHAFTLICHE FAKULTÄT Wintersemester 2015/16 SYLLABUS Contemporary Crime and Criminal Justice are increasingly characterized by the globalization of criminal activities and international efforts to combat transnational crime. This course explores the international legal framework and best practice guidelines to prevent and suppress transnational organized crime, including trafficking in persons, the smuggling of migrants, drug trafficking and the like. The course outlines and examines the criminalization of these activities and, with the focus on European countries, analyzes national, regional and international efforts to investigate such crime and prosecute offenders. The course is designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of contemporary patterns and characteristics of transnational organized crime and relevant international conventions. The seminars, exercises and working-group sessions during the course invite students to critically reflect on the nature and limitations of international criminal law conventions and understand the rationale of international, regional and domestic policies in this area. The course seeks to improve communication, presentation, and research skills. The course enhances students abilities to research policy documents and legal material, critically analyze legislation, case studies and scholarly writing, present research findings to an academic audience, and elaborate practical recommendations for law reform and policy change relevant to the subject area.

Seminars are a forum where, within an analytical framework offered by the course coordinator, students can explore concepts relevant to the topic, examine how relevant policies and laws work, and how relevant skills are put to use. Seminars also offer an interactive forum within which to explore in greater depth the issues relating to transnational organized crime and to engage with other students and the course coordinator in analyzing this issue. As an interactive learning forum, the seminars are dependent upon all students being prepared to engage with the course material, to collaborate with each other and the course coordinator, and to share their ideas and opinions in independent and constructive ways. In a negative sense, the seminars are not for delivering an exclusive and exhaustive account of the material that students need to learn, or read material that students can read themselves. 1.2 Course Coordinator Prof. Dr. Andreas Schloenhardt Universität Wien, Rechtswissenschaftlich Fakultät, Institut für Strafrecht und Kriminologie Schenkenstrasse 4, 1010 Wien, Österreich ( , The University of Queensland, School of Law Brisbane Qld 4072, Australia ( , Andreas Schloenhardt is Professor of Criminal Law in the School of Law at The University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia and Professorial Research Fellow in the Faculty of Law, Department of Criminal Law and Criminology at the University of Vienna, Austria.

Students can choose their research topic from a the list below. Criminal organizations in Switzerland This project explores and analyzes the available open-source information relating to the types, structure, and operation of criminal organizations in Switzerland. Criminal organization, Article 260ter Penal Code (CH) This project explores and analyzes the rationale, background, evolution, elements, application and interpretation of the offence relating to criminal organizations under Article 260ter of the Penal Code (CH), also taking into account academic literature and judicial interpretations. Switzerland s law enforcement response to organized crime This project outlined and critically examines the mandate and powers of Switzerland s law enforcement agencies insofar as these relate to combatting organized crime. Legalising the cultivation, sale, and possession of cannabis in Switzerland This project examines the current arguments and state of the debate in Switzerland relating to the legalizations of cannabis cultivation, sale, and possession of cannabis. It identifies the main proponent and opponents of legalization and their position on the key issues. Drug legislation in Portugal Portugal is frequently cited as a particularly liberal or progressive jurisdiction in relation to the decriminalization of drugs. This project critically examines the background, evolution, and operation of the current drug offence in Portuguese law. Visas for victims of trafficking in persons There are a number of visas available to victims of trafficking in persons in Switzerland. Some of these visas are contingent upon the participation of the victim in criminal proceedings against their traffickers. This project explores and analyzes the visa regime for trafficking victims in Switzerland and assesses relevant visa classes against the requirements in international law and best practice guidelines. Labour trafficking in Switzerland This project explores and analyzes the available open-source information relating to labour trafficking in Switzerland. This may include, for instance, statistics, case law, government reports, scholarly material, et cetera. Government support for victims of trafficking in persons Victims of trafficking in persons in Switzerland have access to a range of support and assistance measures under government schemes. This project explores and analyzes the assistance available to trafficking victims in Switzerland and assesses current schemes against requirements in international law and best practice guidelines. Smuggling of migrants to Switzerland Switzerland is a destination and transit point for the smuggling of migrants. This project examines the levels and patterns of migrant smuggling to Switzerland, and identifies the main routes and modi operandi used to smuggle migrants into/through/out of Switzerland.

9 9 The Criminal Justice Response to Smuggling of Migrants in Switzerland This project examines the criminal justice response to smuggling of migrants in Switzerland, including relevant criminal laws, law enforcement and border control measures, and the role of the prosecution service and the judiciary. Smuggling of unaccompanied minors There have been many reports that migrant smuggling often involves unaccompanied minors who are sent by their families to gain protection or residence in the destination country and later enable the migration of their other relatives. This project explores the levels and patterns of this phenomenon in the Swiss context, examines the application of relevant laws and regulations, and, where necessary, develops recommendations for law reform and policy change. The offence of smuggling of migrants Article 116 Ausländergesetz (CH) This project explores and analyzes the rationale, background, evolution, elements, application and interpretation of the offence of smuggling of migrants under Article 116 of the Ausländergesetz (CH), also taking into account academic literature and judicial interpretations. Smuggling of migrants to Melilla and Ceuta The Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla in northern Africa are a frequent destination for many smuggled migrants seeking to reach Europe. This research project examines the unique location and legal status of these enclaves, explores the levels and characteristics of migrant smuggling to Ceuta and Melilla, and assesses the measures taken by the Spanish Government and the European Union to combat smuggling to these enclaves. The Budapest Process The Budapest Process is a consultative forum of more than 50 governments and 10 international organizations exchanging information and best practices on a wide range of migration issues, chief among them those the smuggling of migrants. This project critically examines the background, work, achievements, and output of the Budapest Process. Smuggling of migrants from Kosovo to Europe Kosovo, one of Europe s least developed countries, has been the source of many irregular migrants who left their country because of poverty and unemployment. Many of them are smuggled to Austria and Germany where they hope to find employment and a better life. This project examines the causes and patterns of migrant smuggling from Kosovo and the steps taken by Western European countries to return smuggled migrants to Kosovo and deter others from attempting to do the same.
