On the Interaction between Transnational Crimes and International Crimes

Published 28 February 2018

“A fascinating reading about the state of affairs in international criminal law”, was the description by Mr. Ladislav Hamran, President of Eurojust, of the newest book launched at the T.M.C. Asser Instituut: ‘Legal Responses to Transnational and International Crimes. Towards an Integrative Approach’. The book launch event on 7 February shed light on the interaction between transnational crimes and international crimes, a topic of growing international focus and increasingly the object of academic research and valorisation activities such as trainings, including at the Asser Institute. The event provided not only a general introduction of the content of the book from Dr. Christophe Paulussen, co-editor of the book and Senior Researcher at the T.M.C. Asser Instituut, but also a keynote speech on the importance of judicial cooperation by Mr. Hamran, as well as a specific case study on the crime of piracy based on a chapter of the new book from Dr. Marta Bo, Researcher at the T.M.C. Asser Instituut and one of the contributors to the book. Read the full report of the event here.
