Going up country : travel essays by Peace Corps writers( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Going Up Country is the first anthology of travel essays by Returned Peace Corps Volunteers. No one knows the back roads, the short roads, the right roads better than Peace Corps Volunteers. Here, in thirteen never-before-published essays, these authors recount their travel experiences in far corners of the world and on distant shores. These travelers' tales are filled with the spirit of adventure, with honesty, and with laughter. These authors are the descendants of Conrad, Twain, Orwell, Greene, and scores of others, expatriates and wanderers all, who have enriched our literature. In "Jumping into the Rainbow," Richard Wiley relays his experience on a weekend photo safari in Kenya, where he's able to astonish and surprise a group of lost Japanese tourists by both speaking their language and offering them much-needed directions. In "Piquing the Spirits," author Mary-Ann Tirone Smith agrees to take a film location scout up Mt. Cameroon but finds he is appalled at her selection of mountain guides - a fourteen-year-old boy who brings along his five-year-old sister - and their supplies - a tin of Danish ham and twelve cookies. And Bob Shacochis offers readers a survey of the best Caribbean beaches well off the tourist route in "Beauty and the Beach." These essays will get you up and packing for your next adventure or urge you to snuggle down deeper in a comfortable chair and keep reading

The role of strategic intelligence in law enforcement : policing transnational organized crime in Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia by John Coyne( )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In today's complex and ever-changing criminal environment, law enforcement agencies have become increasingly aware that their capabilities have been substantially surpassed by the number of criminal acts and rapid expansion of globalized crime. However, despite the growing impact of transnational organized crime (TOC), our understanding of the role of strategic intelligence in combating crime remains limited. The Role of Strategic Intelligence in Law Enforcement explores how strategic intelligence can support decision-makers in complex national policing organizations to prevent, detect, disrupt and investigate TOC. The authors examine four national law enforcement agencies in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, and argue for the development of empirically-grounded intelligence theory for law enforcement. In doing so they develop two conceptual frameworks to better integrate strategic TOC intelligence within law enforcement agencies and enhance the interface between strategic TOC intelligence, the policy process and strategic decision-making

People smugglers globally, 2017 by John Coyne( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By its very nature, any treatment of irregular migration, asylum seekers, human trafficking and people smuggling is highly controversial. To avoid unnecessary controversy, this report focuses on the organisation and business models of the globe's people-smuggling organisations, but the authors have maintained an explorative outlook. This report has drawn together the work of authors from multiple disciplines to explore the global phenomenon that is people smuggling. While it's expansive in its breadth and depth of coverage, it isn't meant to be the definitive source on the subject. Rather, it has been developed to provide readers with a clear, concise and obtainable understanding of the issue and its complexity. The multidisciplinary approach means that each of the chapters explores a different geographical region or issue with a different methodological approach (ethnographic, explorative, legal). Understandably, such an approach exposes and brings together the many disconnects and inconsistencies in knowledge in this area of study. One particularly challenging dimension for this global body of research was dealing with the plethora of legal and non-legal terms used in public discourse on refugees and people smugglers. The report is an exercise in applied research and analysis with a clear policy focus. While its analytical focus is global, its conclusions and recommendations have been made with Australian policymakers in mind

Securing the Australian frontier : an agenda for border security policy by John Coyne( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The traditional ways in which borders have been conceptualised are challenged by an increasingly globalised, connected and interdependent world. Rather than just being a line on a map defined by geographical coordinates, the border is elastic, virtual and psychological. Today, nations are faced with complex and multifaceted border security challenges that transcend both physical borders and traditional sovereignty. For example, Australia's border security agencies implement policies and strategies that make substantial contributions to national security. While Australia's border security efforts have achieved a range of impressive results, the changing operating context, rapidly increasing border movements and tighter fiscal constraints mean that DIBP's search for border innovations must continue at full steam
