LAW 805Z: Policy Practicum: Supporting INTERPOL's Efforts to Combat Transnational Crime

Today, the international community faces increasingly complex security challenges arising from transnational criminal activities. Effective international cooperation among national police agencies is critical in combatting cross-boundary criminal threats like terrorism, human and drug trafficking, and cybercrime. INTERPOL---the world's largest international police organization---has aggressively worked to counter criminal networks across the globe by facilitating international police cooperation through global information sharing via its criminal databases. To conduct cross-border investigations and tackle organized crime, the law enforcement agencies around the globe can instantly access millions of records on fingerprints, DNA, stolen motor vehicles, firearms, and travel documents stored in INTERPOL's databases. Only the designated law enforcement agencies from INTERPOL's member countries are authorized to share and add information to these databases. This project builds on research more »

Only the designated law enforcement agencies from INTERPOL's member countries are authorized to share and add information to these databases. This project builds on research conducted through past iterations of this practicum contributing to INTERPOL's Strategic Framework 2017-2020. Research teams will work directly with senior INTERPOL officials (via video-conferencing and email) to help modernize INTERPOL's organizational structure and improve the agency's efforts to counter cyber-crime and terrorism. Research will likely focus on how INTERPOL can amend its Rules on the Processing of Data and its Constitution to provide the organization with greater flexibility in receiving information from the private sector. The research may also focus on understanding the role of open source data in cyber investigations and identify the legal and policy challenges INTERPOL's criminal intelligence officers may face when relying on open source info in their analysis. This Practicum is open to graduate students from law (2L, 3L, and Advanced Degree), business, international policy, communications, computer science, and other relevant programs. Highly qualified undergraduates are also invited to apply. The practicum meets 9-10:30 on Wednesdays. Elements used in grading: Attendance, Performance, Class Participation, Written Assignments, Final Paper. Cross-listed with International Policy ( INTLPOL 255) in Autumn and Winter.
