About

The Jack and Mae Nathanson Centre on Transnational Human Rights, Crime and Security (formerly the Jack and Mae Nathanson Centre for the Study of Organized Crime and Corruption) studies transnational phenomena and normative issues at the intersections of human rights, crime and security. A transnational crime research node continues the former mandate of the Centre.

One of the Nathanson Centre’s missions is to organize and sponsor events that tackle contemporary challenges in order to foster well-informed public debate. The Centre also encourages the development of more fundamental research programs, and dialogue amongst participating researchers. To that end, we create audio-visual and documentary records of most of our events, which are uploaded to Youtube and posted on our website to ensure their general accessibility and continuing relevance.
