The problems of organised crime

Wed 11/11/15 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Inaugural Lecture evening at the University of Winchester.

The Problems of Organised Crime. Inaugural lecture by Tim Hall, Professor of
Interdisciplinary Social Studies.
The lecture will consider the place of organised crime in the contemporary global
economy and the challenges it raises. It will explore organised crime from a novel
economic geography perspective, highlighting its distribution around the world and the
factors underpinning these patterns.
It will also examine the considerable overlaps between illegal economic activities
associated with organised crime and civil society. In doing so it will look at examples
where organised crime delivers important development and governance functions in
otherwise deprived regions. Finally, given these complexities, the lecture will explore
how best we might respond to the problems of organised crime.
