Financial Crime: Challenges and Responses 
Financial crime is a notable concern for policymakers, law enforcement, and prosecutors – as evident in, for example, HM Government’s Economic Crime Plan 2019-2022; the National Crime Agency’s 2020 National Strategic Assessment of Serious and Organised Crime; and the CPS’ 2021 Economic Crime Strategy. These documents draw particular attention to cybercrime, fraud, money laundering, bribery, corruption, and sanctions evasions. 

While an array of legislative measures has been enacted to tackle such crime, there remains scepticism as to 1. their effectiveness and 2. The far-reaching nature of such laws. So too have there been concerns as to organisational and operational changes in enforcement. Recent developments (notably the ongoing global pandemic and Brexit) add to the uncertainty. 

This online conference will bring together postgraduate researchers (PGRs) and early career researchers (ECRs) to discuss new and emerging insights into efforts to tackle financial crime.
