This project aims to explore the current status of Australia-China security cooperation against a common set of cross-border crime issues, including terrorism, transnational, serious and organised crime (TSOC). From a comparative socio-legal perspective, this project expects to reveal and address the legal, political and procedural factors that impede the effective law enforcement collaboration between Australia and China. Expected outcomes of this project include the identification of the vital components in prospective reform proposals that improve efficiency and quality of cooperation.
