CALL FOR PAPERS: EUROPEAN CRIME-MARKETS AT CROSS-ROADS: EXTENDED AND EXTENDING CRIMINAL EUROPE
Ninth Cross-border Crime Colloquium 21 – 23 October 2007, Prague
The colloquium will be hosted by The Institute of Criminology and Social prevention
Theme: what is known about the development of crime-markets in Europe while the European Union has extended and, after a pause, will probably continue to extend. What will remain the same and what is likely to change?
Potential topics within this framework:
The (organisation of) underground trade in prohibited substances, e.g. drugs.
The ‘criminal services markets’, e.g. human smuggling.
The ‘upperworld’ crime-economy: financial and economic crime.
Criminal money management: laundering and the role of crime-money in the upperworld.
Developments and changes in the international organisation of crime from a national perspective
Upper- and underworld: crime, power and corruption
These topics are not suggested as an exhaustive list. Related topics are certainly welcomed. As usual the contributions will be peer reviewed and published in the well-known Colloquium Series. For this reason the contributors are requested to submit a draft of their intended paper before the Colloquium.
The Colloquium is free of charges and free residence is available for 20 foreign participants during the conference. Further information will be posted at cross-border-crime.net
