CFP: Financial Crime Symposium: past lessons, contemporary challenges, and future solutions

A one-day conference in September which is being organised by Cerian Griffiths in conjunction with the Digital Panopticon project.

Date: 2nd September 2016 (deadline for abstracts: 30 June 2016)
Location: London Campus of the University of Liverpool

This one-day symposium will bring together academics, regulators, and legal practitioners to better understand the changing faces of financial crime and explore innovative approaches to tackling financial misconduct.

The symposium will focus upon a wide range of financial crimes and wider issues of financial practice that have come under public scrutiny in recent years. There shall be a particular focus upon historical financial crime, and the lessons which can be learned from the treatment of financial misconduct historically. Seldom do academics and practitioners have the opportunity to come together and discuss the issues surrounding financial crime in a wider historical context. This event provides a rare opportunity for discussion into the origins of financial crime and how these still impact upon the contemporary regulation and prosecution of financial crime.

Contributions are welcome from regulators, legal practitioners and academics from across disciplines. Papers on the following themes would be particularly welcome:

  • Financial crime and the 19th century development of the company
  • Victims of financial crime
  • The relationship between financial crime and financial misconduct
  • Regulators of financial crime
  • Financial crime and globalisation
  • Financial crime and moral economy
  • Problems facing the prosecution of financial crime
  • Modern variations of financial crime

Papers that focus upon either historical and/or contemporary analyses are welcome, particularly those that draw parallels between historical and modern-day themes.

Abstracts of no more than 200 words should be sent to by 30 June 2016.
