Contemporary Crime in a Global Business Environment

The conference will concentrate on the issues of criminal law and procedure related to the global business environment. Facilitation of illegal immigration, trafficking of human beings, counterfeiting of goods with an impact on public health and safety, synthetic drugs production and polydrug trafficking in the EU, cybercrime and money laundering are indicated as key forms of serious and organized crime and high priority threats to EU, while environmental crime (illicit waste trafficking) and energy fraud are identified as rapidly emerging threats which need closer evaluation. The increase in volume, scope and financial damage combined with the asymmetric risk that characterises cybercrime has reached such levels that in some EU countries cybercrime may have surpassed traditional crime in terms of reporting[1].

Speakers are invited to share their opinions on whether and how countries and lawyers at national, regional and international level are prepared to successfully deal with the new threats, what problems arise and suggest the best possible solutions and to share good examples from their practices. These and other theoretical and practical issues related to the relevant intersections of the fields of crime and business are the focus of the upcoming conference.

Legal practitioners and scholars conducting research in the field of law (as well as in related interdisciplinary fields) are invited to participate in the event.
