The Institute has developed a significant programme of research in the area of the control of International economic crime. Its expertise in this particular area is recognised internationally and is illustrated by the large number of commissioned studies and other projects which have been awarded to its staff by inter-governmental and other agencies. For example, the Institute's staff have been particularly successful in securing a number of projects under the European Union's Falcone and Grotius Programmes relating to economic and organised crime control.
The Institute maintains its involvement with a number of publications relating to international crime. Professor Rider and Dr Nakajima serve as the general editors of The Journal of Money Laundering Control; and Professor Rider is the general editor of The Journal of Financial Crime, both published by Henry Stewart Publications. Julian Harris, Associate Research Fellow of the Institute, is author of Sweet & Maxwell's Money Laundering Monitor, which updates the firm's loose-leaf publication The Anti-Money Laundering Guide.
