Economic crime raises serious moral and political concerns, undermines economic, physical, social and psychological well-being, and distorts the well-functioning of competitive markets. Covid-19, the war in Ukraine, the cost-of-living crisis, and other major disruptions have impacted the operation of both traditional forms of economic crime, such as public procurement fraud, and its new forms, such as romance fraud. Understanding this broader socio-economic context alongside the complexity of economic crime requires combining different disciplinary perspectives, being it criminology, law, economics, accountancy, security, business management, computer science, and psychology.
The 4th Winter Economic Crime Symposium brings together a diverse body of researchers, practitioners, students, and other community members to discuss how economic criminology can feed an effective response to economic crime in a rapidly changing world. The Symposium is supported by the Journal of Economic Criminology
Join scholars, practitioners, and other experts for a discussion and reflection on the most important problems associated with economic crime.
The Symposium is online and organized by the Econimic Crime Research Group led by Dr. Branislav Hock from the University of Portsmouth at 10 o’clock GMT , 19th January 2023.
