Organised crime research in Australia 2018

Australian Institute of Criminology
Abstract: 

Organised crime and its transnational dimension is a persistent threat with the very real potential to undermine the rule of law and the security of Australia. In 2016, the Australian Institute of Criminology and the Australian National University established the Organised Crime Research Forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from around the country to present and discuss their work. The purpose of the Forum was to raise the profile of a pressing global and domestic crime problem and to forge research partnerships between law enforcement agencies and the university sector.

This collection of papers, presented at the second national Organised Crime Research Forum, draws on the insights and experiences of organised crime researchers to contribute to the evidence base needed to adapt and develop ever more effective responses to the threat of organised crime.
