Towards an Integrative Approach
Edited by Harmen Van der Wilt and Christophe Paulussen
Chapter 3: Is international criminal law an appropriate mechanism to deal with organised crime in a global society?
The structural differences between international and transnational crimes, and between international and transnational criminal law, are not dispelled by the globalisation of transnational organised crime. As a result, the reasons for the different responses provided by international and transnational criminal law to international and transnational crimes remain intact. Nevertheless, this does not prevent the most serious acts of violence by clandestine business structures from amounting to international crimes, in particular crimes against humanity. Consequently, they should receive an appropriate response to their true nature by international criminal law.
