Due to globalization, the economic structures of developing countries are experiences competitive advantages. More specifically, due to the progress in economic as well as financial context, development in information technology has been witnessed leading to the circulation of goods, money as well as information around the world. However, most of the people are identified to be having the perception that due to globalization, the criminal offense has increased in a worldwide context. It will be worth mentioning that international crime has spread over the world that also affected the economic progress of every country (Shaw &amp. et. al., 2003).

Currently, crime has become one of the most important factors affecting the social structure of the globe. It will be worth mentioning that from the past two decades, the global governances has been experiencing numerous failures in maintaining continuous growth in economic terms due to imbalanced social structure. It has been observed that the recent phenomenon i.e. globalization has increased criminal activities within the world. With the increase in cross border business activities within the global economy, the rate of criminal offenses has also increased gradually. More specifically, the crime rate is increasing day-by-day. In this context, changes in societal structures, political structure as well as other social aspects are recognized as vital reasons for building criminal behavior within the society (Newburn, 2013).

The involvement of the youth within the prospect of globalized crime is recognized to be a vital reason for the increasing rate of criminal activities. Globalization has provided a platform for the crime world for performing illegal activities on a global basis. Most of the people are involved in criminal activities due to a large number of circumstances that include ineffective criminal regulations in other countries and the rate of unwanted activities.
