I am Terence HALSBERGHE (dob 20/08/1967), a belgian federal police officer and law and criminology student at the University of Ghent, BELGIUM.
Finishing my masters in Criminology this year, I'm writing my thesis (dissertation) on :
'Underwater investigation. A discipline in development ? A research on the legal and policing frame-work' .
I myself will do my academic and police research mainly in a European setting but do look across the ocean for trendsetting and technical breakthroughs and will of course also have a look at the international legal framework in terms of jurisdiction (treaties) in open water (this in the light of potential terrorist and criminal underwater threats against vital economic, environmental and defense interests and how to defend and police these matters).
If anyone would have any suggestions on the topic or could lead me to Anglosaxon bibliographies or encyclopedias I would be most grateful.
Anyone just looking for a discussion on the topic, welcome too !
