Abstract

In the current context of globalization, we intend, in the present study to approach from a criminological perspective some specific concepts. We can find in various written articles, some coming from institutions with competences in investigating and sanctioning the criminal phenomenon, the inappropriate use of concepts such as organized crime/organized criminality, international crime/transnational crime, mondialization of crime/globalization of crime. The most commonly misused concept is that of organized crime instead of organized criminality (referring to English organized crime), which is most likely based on a translation error from English to Romanian. These findings led us to undertake a review of such concepts in order to provide clarification. A thorough conceptual delimitation primarily supports the choice of a correct methodological framework for the analysis of particular crime phenomenon or crime as a social phenomenon and can help us choose the most appropriate means of combating it.
