In recent years, drug use, illegal migration and human trafficking have all become more common in Asia, North America and Asia: the problems of organized crime and human trafficking are no longer confined to operating at the traditional regional level. This book fills a gap in the current literature by examining transnational crime, human trafficking and its implications for human security from both Western and Asian perspectives. The book:

Provides an outline of the overall picture of organized crime and human trafficking in the contemporary world, examining the current trends and recent developments

contrasts the experience and perception of these problems in Asia with those in the West, by analyzing the distinctive Japanese perspective on globalization, human security and transnational crime

examines the policy responses of key states and international institutions in Germany, Canada, the United States, the European Union, Japan, and Korea.

This book argues that any effort to combat these crimes requires a response that addresses the welfare of human beings alongside the standard criminal law response. It represents a timely analysis of the increasingly serious problems of transnational crime, human trafficking and security.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A compelling read,this book is loaded with current research on transnational crime and human traficking; it also includes many valuable figures and tables. The book is also well organized, which prevents the research from becoming overwhelming... I believe this book has considerable value for any security professional whose company's goods or services cross international boundaries, as well as for those simply interested in learning more about international crime and human trafficking." - Kevin D. Eack; Security Management, May 2012

"This well-researched edited volume will not only serve as a base for future studies in human security, transnational crime and human trafficking, but will also be valuable for scholars, students and policy makers concerned with human rights". - Kai Chen, College of Public Administration, Zhejiang University, China
