Regulation and through it, prevention, is increasingly seen as the most cost effective first line of defence against a wide range of crimes which include terrorist financing and money laundering. This subject examines the regulation of crime from theoretical, policy and legal control perspectives. Theoretical perspectives on the nature and causes of crime, and the roles the state and other actors play in regulating criminal behaviours will be examined. Regulatory and criminal justice failures will be examined with a view to understand why such failures occur. The effectiveness of regulatory, criminal and civil sanctions will also be examined.
