There is a major research gap in the knowledge of the extent, organisation and control of economic crimes. The objectives of the study are:

  1. To generate a better conceptualisation of and evidence base for research on the nature, extent and organisation of fraud and the economic crime component of 'organised crime', from local to global;
  2. To review and to try to account for changes and continuities in the control of economic crime, including the array of public-private partnerships that have become an increasingly important feature of 'policing beyond the police' and 'governance beyond the State'.

The project will analyse the best ways of classifying economic crimes and examine the use of the state as a useful way of counting fraud risks. Another strand is analysis of how different forms of financial crimes are organised, using social network analysis and other methodologies.

Finally, the study will show how businesses, police, governments and international bodies inter-relate in the area of economic crime and its control. Among the broader themes illuminated will be the extent to which policing bodies and governments respond to business financial crime interests; and the process of economic crime control policy transfer within Europe and globally.
