Crime and Victimization are no longer confined to boundaries. Criminals as well as their victims have transcended their borders due to globalization and growth of modern technologies. Though, illegal drug trade, money laundering, sex rackets do exist before the globalized era the contemporary cases of Terrorism and Cyber Crimes have significantly changed the crime and victimization scenario. Internationalization of crime and victimization needs to be examined in-depth and conventional solutions have found to be ineffective.
