CALL FOR PAPERS: SPECIAL ISSUE OF GLOBAL CRIME

CALL FOR PAPERS: SPECIAL ISSUE OF GLOBAL CRIME

Global Crime invites contribution to the special issue “The Economics of Organized Crime”. The topic is purposely broad in scope, and hope to attract researchers from a diversity of fields. We welcome empirical studies which focus on the economic activities of organized crime groups, whether licit or illicit, or papers using economic theory or economic tools to analyze a specific activity or issue relating to organized crime. While all papers on the economic aspects of organized crime are welcome, three themes are of particular interest:

1. The circumstances where violence can be used by organized crime groups to control illegal or legal markets
2. Studies and analysis of new organized crime groups or new areas of organized crime ‘business’
3. The extent to which organized crime and terrorist groups overlap and the implications for the study and control of these groups.

The deadline to submit papers is September 15th, 2008. Guidelines for authors can be found at http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/authors/fglcauth.asp

Articles should be submitted electronically to one of the special issue Editors:

Martin Bouchard, PhD, Assistant Professor, School of Criminology, Simon Fraser University, 8888 University Drive, Burnaby, BC, Canada, V5A 1S6, mbouchard@sfu.ca

Dr. Chris Wilkins, PhD, Senior Researcher at Centre for Social Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation (SHORE), Massey University (NZ), c.wilkins@massey.ac.nz
