Challenging Cross Border Crime

Transnational crimes, such as human trafficking, trafficking in firearms, drug trafficking, money laundering, child pornography, internet crimes, and corruption do not respect borders, laws, or people. Addressing these crimes comprehensively, swiftly, and effectively is required to give meaning to justice, the rule of law and respect for human rights.
