The 35th Cambridge International Symposium on Economic Crime, 03-10 Sep 2017, Cambridge, UK

Professor Barry Rider, Editor of the Journal of Financial Crime and the Journal of Money Laundering Control and Executive Director and Co-Chairman of the Symposium, is inviting scholars and practitioners interested in the prevention of economic crime, in joining the 35th Cambridge International Symposium on Economic Crime held between the 03rd and the 10th of Sep 2017 at Jesus College, University of Cambridge.

The theme of the 35th Symposium is PREVENTING AND CONTROLLING ECONOMIC CRIME IN THE MODERN WORLD  – whose responsibility and are they really up to it?

Well over 600 experts from around the world will share their experience and knowledge with other participants drawn from policy makers, law enforcement, compliance, regulation, business and the professions. In considering how to better discourage and control economic crime the Symposium examines the real threats facing our economies and in particular those who look after other people’s wealth not just from criminals and terrorists, but also indirectly as a result of law enforcement and regulatory intervention. The Symposium also contexts these risks and the responses not only in terms of the law, but also regulation and especially compliance practice.

In recent years the symposium has attracted well over 1,800 participants from over 90 countries. Just spend a few minutes to look through the 35th Symposium programme and you will be impressed by its depth, breath and relevance.

The symposium is not an ordinary conference - it was conceived to fulfil a very practical purpose. To promote understanding of the real issues in controlling economically motivated crime and facilitate cooperation and effective action – ideally preventive. Consequently, every effort is made to foster networking and promoting meaningful cooperation.
