Organised Crime Research Network


A UCL-based research network on preventing and controlling organised crime


Tomorrow: International Crime Science Conference 2016

By Patricio Estevez-Soto, on 11 July 2016

The UCL Organised Crime Research Network will be participating in the International Crime Science Conference—which will take place tomorrow July 12 at the British Library—with a parallel session on organised crime.

The session, titled “The European Refugee Crisis and Organised Crime” will be chaired by Dr Paul Gill, from UCL Security and Crime Science, and will feature Klaus Von Lampe, from Jon Jay College of Criminal Justice, and Chiara Galletti, from Crime, Violence and Instability work stream.

Given the prominence of migration in Europe’s current political debates, this session promises to be enlightening while contributing to the debate from academic and practitioner perspectives on this phenomenon’s effect on organised crime.

The session will take place at 15:00 in the Dickens Room.
