The Problems of Organised Crime
Inaugural lecture by Tim Hall, Professor of Interdisciplinary Social Studies.
The lecture will consider the place of organised crime in the contemporary global economy and the challenges it raises. It will explore organised crime from a novel economic geography perspective, highlighting its distribution around the world and the factors underpinning these patterns.
It will also examine the considerable overlaps between illegal economic activities associated with organised crime and civil society. In doing so it will look at examples where organised crime delivers important development and governance functions in otherwise deprived regions. Finally, given these complexities, the lecture will explore how best we might respond to the problems of organised crime.
