Banking, Finance and the Business of Organised Financial Crime

Clare Jones
Mary Young

Banking and Finance has yet again been a very topical subject matter for law, society and government over the last 12 months (including the HSBC Files, the development of tax compliance programmes and the evolution of whistleblowing protection laws in financial secrecy havens); while the total global proceeds of organised crime are estimated to be US$870 billion a year (UNODC). The Banking, Finance and the Business of Organised Financial Crime stream welcomes submissions of paper proposals which concentrate on a wide array of topical research areas within the areas of banking, finance and organised financial crime.

Abstracts are also invited for the 2016 SLSA Conference on the theme of Transnational Organised Crime and in particular those areas which are under current consideration in your academic fields.

If your paper concerns the sub-theme of this panel, please submit your paper to the Transnational Organised Crime theme, otherwise, submit to the Banking, Finance and Business of Organised Crime stream.

Areas which will be considered in both the stream and theme include, but are not limited to:

  • The banking crisis and reforms – national and international
  • Financial crime
  • Offshore financial centres
  • Financial secrecy
  • Alternative finance
  • National and international banking regulation
  • Corporate governance
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • Financial exclusion/inclusion
  • Credit unions
  • Remuneration and bonuses
  • Current legislation on any forms of banking and finance including tax
  • Tax evasion
  • Tax compliance
  • Banking scandals
  • The big business of organised crime.
  • The proceeds of organised crime
  • The socio-economic effects on society.
  • Following the money of organised crime.
  • Policy and legal responses to transnational organised crime.
  • Globalisation and transnational organised crime.
  • Digital and virtual organised financial crime.

Abstracts may only be submitted via the Easy Chair Platform. They must be no longer than 300 words and should include your title, name and institutional affiliation and your email address for correspondence.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 18th January 2016.
