Robert J. Currie and Sarah Douglas (Dalhousie University - Schulich School of Law and McInnes Cooper) have posted Human Rights and Transnational Organized Crime (Forthcoming in F. Allum & S. Gilmore, eds., Routledge Handbook of Transnational Organized Crime (Routledge, 2021)) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
This chapter surveys and explains the various points of intersection between legal efforts to suppress transnational organized crime and international human rights law. After covering the application of human rights standard to domestic prosecutions and inter-state cooperation efforts, it shifts to the use of international suppression mechanisms as a way to promote and protect human rights, with specific focus on the anti-human trafficking regime and its emerging victim-centred approach.
