Organized financial crimes and fraud
About this talk
In this session, Frauke Wittevrongel from Ghent University, will present her paper on the crime-business nexus: a state of the art, which explores the relationships between organised crime and legitimate businesses. After this intervention, Maria Jofre, from Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, will present the findings of her research on ‘Network analysis for financial crime risk assessment: the case study of the gambling division in Malta’, which aims to support existing risk assessment tools by proposing an innovative network-oriented methodology based on ownership information. The session will conclude with a presentation by Anna Laskai, from Utrecht University, on the case of “the Gucci Master” which will explore both the complexities of the case itself, as well as examine prevailing criminological concepts and understanding of transnational organized (cyber) crime.
