In addition to addressing ongoing issues in cross border policing, the EU Internal Security Strategy has highlighted new areas for development within the EU cross border law enforcement framework. Changing political and security realities are also having an impact on the EU law enforcement landscape. This UACES funded collaborative conference on Policing and European Studies will be holding its third conference in order to explore these changes. This network plans to hold its third conference on this theme, on the 30th March 2012 at the University of Abertay Dundee.
We invite research papers (maximum of 6,000 words) from doctoral and early career researchers, as well as more established academics, practitioners and policy makers, from across a range of disciplines such as police and security studies, law, criminology and sociology, political science, International Relations, European studies, psychology, and management and organisational change.
Proposals for papers are invited covering these strands, in particular, but in no means confined to the following areas; Policing the border in a post-Stockholm Europe; Policing human trafficking in the EU; Policing economic crime in the EU; Cybercrime and EU Policing – new technologies, new policing?; Adapting to transnational policing.
Please send an abstract of 150 to 200 words to the organisers by the 18th November 11. You will be notified if your application is successful by Friday the 2nd December 11, with registration for the conference being opened after that date.
NB: Limited funding will be available to assist with expenses of PhD students / early career academics.
Please contact the conference organisers if you require further information as to this conference, or the research network generally. Dr Maria O’Neill, Senior Lecturer in Law, University of Abertay Dundee, Bell Street, Dundee DD 1 1HG, Scotland, UK firstname.lastname@example.org
