The movement of humans across borders is increasing exponentially—some for benign reasons, others nefarious, including terrorism, human trafficking, and people smuggling. Consequently, the policing of human movement within and across borders has been and remains a significant concern to nations. Policing Global Movement: Tourism, Migration, Human Trafficking, and Terrorism explores the nature of these challenges for police, governments, and citizens at large.

Drawn from keynote and paper presentations at a recent International Police Executive Symposium meeting in Malta, the book presents the work of scholars and practitioners who analyze a variety of topics on the cutting edge of global policing, including:

  • Western attempts to reform the policing of sex tourists in the Philippines and Gambia

  • Policing the flow of people and goods in the port of Rotterdam

  • Policing protestors and what happened at the 2010 G20 Summit in Toronto

  • Mexico’s use of the military in its war against drug trafficking

  • Public–private cooperation in the fight against organized crime and terrorism in Australia

  • Recommendations for police reform in Afghanistan

  • Sweden’s national counterterrorism unit

  • Treatment of asylum seekers in a privately run detention center in South Africa

  • The policing of human trafficking for the sex trade in sub-Saharan Africa, Vietnam, Australia, and Andhra Pradesh, India

Examining areas of increasing concern to governments and citizens around the world, this timely volume presents critical international perspectives on these ongoing global challenges that threaten the safety of humans worldwide.

About the Series

International Police Executive Symposium Co-Publications

The International Police Executive Symposium (IPES) was founded in 1994 to address one major challenge, i.e., the two worlds of research and practice remain disconnected even though cooperation between the two is growing. Research is often published in hard-to-access journals and presented in a manner that is difficult for some to comprehend. On the other hand, police practitioners tend not to mix with researchers and remain secretive about their work. Consequently there is little dialogue between the two, and almost no attempt to learn from one another.

The aims and objectives of the IPES are to provide a forum to foster closer relationships among police researchers and practitioners on a global scale, to facilitate cross-cultural international and interdisciplinary exchanges for the enrichment of this law enforcement, to encourage discussion, and to publish research on challenging and contemporary problems facing the policing profession. The IPES facilitates interaction and the exchange of ideas and opinions on all aspects of policing, and is structured to encourage dialogue in both formal and informal settings.

The International Police Executive Symposium (IPES) holds annual meetings of policing scholars and practitioners who represent many countries. The best papers are selected, thoroughly revised, fully updated, meticulously edited, and published as books based upon the theme of each meeting. This repository of knowledge from renowned criminal justice scholars and police professionals under the co-publication imprint of IPES and Routledge (formerly CRC Press) chronicles the important contributions of the International Police Executive Symposium over the last two decades.
