Essay due Friday 8th February
Some sociologists define globalisation as an increasing interconnectedness
in the world. Globalisation is multi-causal, and there are a number of key
processes and events that may have aided its development, including:
the end of the Cold War
the growth of transnational organisations
the expansion of free trade.
Views on the impact of globalisation on crime vary. Globalisation has led to
changes in the opportunities to commit crime. This has meant increases in
some types of crime such as fraud, and new crimes such as cyber crime.
Using material from Item B and elsewhere, assess the view that the process of
globalisation has led to changes in both the amount of crime and the types of crime
committed. (21 marks)
