STUDENT HANDOUTSfor 2000/2001

Ollie Scott's Website 1999/2000

THE PRIMARY GOAL OF THIS PAGE IS TO OFFER SUPPORT TO STUDENTS FOLLOWING MY MODULE ON EUROPEAN POLICING. ANYONE INTERESTED IN THE SUBJECT IS OF COURSE WELCOME AND THERE WILL ULTIMATELY BE A DISCUSSION PAGE WITH DOWNLOADABLE DOCUMENTS VIA A FRAMES VERSION. IF YOU AREN'T A STUDENT ON THE MODULE, BEAR WITH THE CONTEMPORARY EDUCATIONAL JARGON.

THIS SITE INCLUDES LINKS TO OTHER RELEVANT WEB-SITES. Everything in blue is clickable and most will work as long as the Commission promises not to reorganise itself again during the first week of the module. Murphy's law means that it will do so annually.

THE LINKS ARE NOW AVAILABLE ON A SEPARATE PAGE AS WELL AS BEING INCORPORATED INTO THE TEXT THAT FOLLOWS. THERE IS A LINK TO A PAGE WITH BIOGRAPHICAL DATA UP ABOVE IF YOU CLICK ON MY NAME. I RUN A SEPARATE SITE WITH LINKS RELATING TO THE FORMER COMMUNIST COUNTRIES.

THE LEARNING OBJECTIVES OF THE MODULE ARE:

IN ADDITION TO THE GENERAL SKILLS OF PRESENTATION, GROUP WORK LIBRARY USAGE AND REPORT AND ESSAY WRITING, THE MODULE WILL ALSO INTRODUCE STUDENTS TO THE TECHNIQUES REQUIRED FOR GATHERING UP TO DATE DOCUMENTARY MATERIAL FROM THE INTERNET.

EUROPEAN UNION SITES

FOR POLICIES WITH REGARD TO JUSTICE AND HOME AFFAIRS YOU NEED TO GET USED TO USING THE EUROPA SERVER FOR DOCUMENTS FROM THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION. EQUALLY USEFUL IS THE MASTER LINK SITE FOR ALL THE EUROPEAN UNION WEBSITES AND SERVERS.

ALSO RELEVANT ARE:

YOU WILL ALSO NEED TO ACQUAINT YOURSELF WITH:

 

 

THERE IS A GLOSSARY OF TERMS FREQUENTLY USED IN THE EU CALLED SCADPLUS, WHICH WILL EXPLAIN SOME OF THE TERMS USED ON THIS WEBPAGE.

THE RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED UNDER JUSTICE AND HOME AFFAIRS COOPERATION ARE NOW LISTED UNDER ITEM 19 IN EUR-LEX

ALSO USEFUL ARE THE UCLAF REPORTS. UCLAF HAS NOW BEEN SUPERCEDED BY OLAF. IF YOU'RE AN EXETER STUDENT YOU CAN GET THE DRAFT OF MY ARTICLE "OLAF MEETS THE WISE MEN" ON REMUS. [SORRY IF YOU'RE OUTSIDE, BUT THE FINAL VERSION WILL BE PUBLISHED BY THE JOURNAL OF FINANCIAL CRIME.]

FOR CRITICAL MATERIAL, TRY THE STATEWATCH DATABASE.

THERE ARE ALSO SOME ANARCHIST SITES THAT ARE QUITE EXCITING. THEY MOVE QUITE QUICKLY BUT THE DISINFORMATION SEARCH ENGINE WILL THROW SOME UP.

IF YOU AREN'T SURE WHERE A COUNTRY IS, I'VE DISCOVERED A WONDERFUL MAP OF EUROPE WITH CLICKABLE LINKS TO THE HOME PAGES OF EACH COUNTRY.

POLICE SITES

FOR POLICING, THERE ARE NOW AN INCREDIBLE NUMBER OF SITES.

TRY EUROPOL

THERE IS A MASTER SITE FOR UK POLICE SERVICES. The map is quite slow to load, but once you get to the individual constabularies it's reasonably quick.

NCIS [the National Criminal Intelligence Service] WILL HAVE MORE CROSS-BORDER CRIME INFORMATION

THERE ARE INDIVIDUAL COUNTRY SITES FOR:

THERE ARE ALSO A NUMBER OF INDIVIDUALS WHO MAINTAIN THEIR OWN SET OF POLICE AND CRIME-RELATED LINKS:

 

SEARCH ENGINES

CRIME IS SUCH AN ENORMOUS SUBJECT THAT YOU WILL NEED TO USE THE BROWSERS SUCH AS

EUROFERRET, WHICH DEALS ONLY WITH EUROPEAN SITES

ALTA VISTA, WHICH HAS UNFORTUNATELY ABANDONED ITS UK SITE AND IS NOW AVAILABLE IN A NEW FORMAT FROM THE US.

AND YAHOO.

LEARNING HOW TO CARRY OUT AN "ADVANCED SEARCH" WILL SAVE YOU LOTS OF

TIME. BUT ASK JEEVES AND HE'LL TRY TO DO IT FOR YOU!

LINKS TO LINK PAGES

BRAD OF IT SERVICES AT EXETER UNIVERSITY MAINTAINS A USEFUL LINKS PAGE, ON WHICH THERE IS A FULL SET OF SEARCH TOOLS.

PATRICK OVERY IN THE LAW LIBRARY MAINTAINS AN AMAZING SET OF EUROPE-RELATED LINKS.

STEWART MACWILLIAM IN THE MAIN LIBRARY HAS SET UP A NUMBER OF POLITICS RELATED LINKS, INCLUDING MANY NEWSPAPERS AND VISUAL MEDIA HOME PAGES. BUT THE BEST ARE MAINTAINED BY RICHARD KIMBER AT KEELE. GO LOOK AT HIS POLITICAL SCIENCE RESOURCES. THEY ARE TRULY MIND-BOGGLING.

STATISTICS ON CRIME BY COUNTRY AND NUMBERS OF POLICE OFFICERS, ALONG WITH MANY OTHER BITS AND PIECES OF INFORMATION ARE AVAILABLE FROM THE UNITED NATIONS CRIMINAL JUSTICE INFORMATION NETWORK [UNCJIN] WITH LOTS OF OTHER LINKS TO RELEVANT SITES.

YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE TO SIGN UP TO THE WORLD JUSTICE INFORMATION NETWORK [WJIN]. THEY WILL SEND YOU INFORMATION WEEKLY, BUT YOUR INBOX FILLS UP FAST.

SITES DEALING WITH INDIVIDUAL CRIMES

AS THEY DEVELOP I WILL TRY TO INCLUDE LINKS TO ISSUE-RELATED SITES. IN THE MEANTIME TRY VISITING FOREIGN AFFAIRS FOR SOME GOOD LINKS ON INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AND SUPRANTIONALISM. THERE IS ALSO A GENERAL SITE OFFERING LAW AND POLITICS LINKS IN WASHINGTON. IF BY SOME CHANCE YOU'VE EVER WONDERED WHERE TO GO TO FIND OUT ABOUT CHINA, TRY HERE.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF SITES WITH LINKS TO OTHER SITES ABOUT ORGANISED CRIME. START WITH THE NATHANSON CENTRE IN CANADA, THEN TRY MARIO'S CYBERSPACE STATION [ITHINK THAT'S WHAT HE CALLS IT!], THEN THIS SITE [wanted dead or alive], AND AFTER THAT AN OLDIE BUT GOODIE, BEFORE HITTING THE GLOBAL ORGANISED CRIME PROJECT.

TRANSCRIME HAS ALL ITS WORKING PAPERS AVAILABLE ON THE WEB. THIS IS A RESEARCH INSTITUTE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TRENTO, ITALY.

A NEW SITE IS RUN BY AGORA. AT PRESENT IT HAS A POLITICAL RESOURCES SECTION, BUT THERE IS ALSO A NEWS SECTION. IT MAY PAY EXPLORING AND BOOKMARKING.

PUBLISHED MATERIAL 

There are books online at the Online books page

And you can visit the Internet Public Library

If you're already lost maybe you need a Glossary of Internet terms

 

And the desperate may want to get help from Research It.

 

ERPA the Euorpean Research Papers Archive includes some excellent articles on European matters, including the European Integration online Papers 

I INTEND TO BE REALLY GEEKY AND PUT MY OWN PAPERS, WHERE I RETAIN COPYRIGHT, ONTO THE NET.

YOU CAN BUY MY BOOK "POLICING IN EUROPE UNIFORM IN DIVERSITY" ON-LINE FROM INTELLECT, THE PUBLISHERS

An online review in Criminal Justice International is available HERE

AN OLD PAPER "TURNING A BLIND EYE", COMPARING SECURITY POLICY IN ITALY AND NORTHERN IRELAND AT THE START OF THE TROUBLES, WAS PUBLISHED IN LATE 1998 IN AN ELECTRONIC JOURNAL CALLED EUROPA.
