Governing through Globalised Crime
This chapter moves beyond the suggestion that crime is a problem for global governance. Instead it advances crime – and terrorism in particular – as instrumental in the promotion of the 'new' globalisation and 'para-justice' control regimes. Along with the argued utility of crime in global governance, the fear of crime and the valorisation of crime victims are identified as vital forces over the crime/governance nexus. With international terrorism justifying a risk/security focus for global governance, criminal justice is both relied upon, and contorted, in the achievement of violent control agendas.
