    Abstract

    Event synopsis: Organised criminal networks often seek to enter the legitimate economic and political establishment’ via creation and ownership of legitimate business. This may be to launder the proceeds of crime, or to extend influence over political governance structures and thus widen their control and improve their ability to preclude state intervention. This workshop will analyse the social and criminal organisation of the corrupt activities of ostensibly legitimate businesses, controlled by illegitimate/criminal actors, and such activities by entirely criminal groupings. We will investigate how, why and under which conditions corruption in criminal commercial enterprise is organised how to identify vulnerabilities and critical intervention points in the organisation of corruption in criminal commercial enterprise which ‘smart’ mixes of legal and extra-legal mechanisms can be developed to inform the responses of (state and non- state) regulators/interveners
