North-South Irish Responses to Transitional Organised Crime
Dr Tomoya Obokata
Dr. Tom Obokata has secured £195,000 from the Arts and Humanities Research Council to conduct research entitled "North-South Irish Responses to Transitional Organised Crime." To be specific, Dr. Obokata and his research team will be examining the extent to which relevant European and international standards on organised crime are implemented in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, with particular reference to cross-border co-operation. The project will also look at other pertinent issues such as transitional justice, devolution of powers relating to crime and criminal justice in Northern Ireland and the nexus between organised crime and terrorism. The project will last for 2 years and various academic and practitioner focused publications will be produced at the end.
