The relativity of wrongdoing: Corruption, organised crime, fraud and money laundering in perspective
Petrus C. van Duyne, Almir Maljevic, Georgios A. Antonopoulos, Jackie Harvey, Klaus von Lampe (eds.)Wolf Legal Publishers 2015 Nijmegen (NETH),ISBN: 978-94-6240-228-7 (374 pages)

When we look back at the past decades of crime and criminal policy development, a substantial part of which – 15 years – is covered by the Cross-border Crime Colloquium Volumes, one cannot avoid a feeling of relativity: within a lifetime some moral and criminal issues have changed from ‘threat’ to ‘acceptable’ or the other way round, or are only nominally maintained but their urgency has become diluted or ‘bleached’. One may call this relativity the ‘wink of history’. Naturally much depends on the subject at stake: moral relativity does not always express itself unambiguously as there are so many shades between black and white. The criminological issues of this volume which covers a range of criminal manifestations, from corruption, organised crime in post conflict regions, cigarette smuggling, money laundering, fraud and their supervisory bodies, can be represented as a kind of ‘relativity parade’, analogous to the Gay Pride Parade. In this volume it is called the ‘Moral Relativity Pride Parade’ and it is this lens through which we address this diversity of subjects. Depicting the elaborated themes as a parade of Moral Relativity Floats with a challenging crew of participants, does not hide the fact that there is also much policy making moral duplicity presented with no tinge of ‘relativity’ but dressed in the cloths of moral rectitude. For example: toughon-(organised) crime legislation neglecting basic principles of criminal law safeguards; crying wolf against certain forms of organised crime when the real issue is poverty; supervisory structures which look more like a bad marriage relationship between supervisors and the supervised actors than addressing the (money laundering) problem in the real life; or prioritising a concern like EU fraud while installing an European agency as a toothless watchdog. This fourteenth volume of the Cross-border Crime Colloquium, an institution which stimulates a critical discourse on crime and crimecontrol in Europe and beyond, contains the peer-reviewed critical and innovative contributions of 23 international experts. The chapters are based on empirical data or critical theorising and highlight new aspects of these fields.

Human dimensions in organised crime, money laundering and corruption
Petrus C. van Duyne, Jackie Harvey, Georgios A. Antonopoulos, Klaus von Lampe, Almir Maljeviæ, Anna Markovska (eds.), Wolf Legal Publishers 2014 Nijmegen (NETH),ISBN: 978-94-6240-128-0 (414 pages)

Corruption, economic and organised crime continues to affect European society as anywhere in the world. It seeps through every crack of the structures of civil society: whether it concerns trade and industry, the public administration or the governments. This is not an outside threat against which society can defend itself by establishing more defence mechanisms. It originates from within as the driving force - greed - is not an outside driver. It manifests itself in perverse reward systems within enterprises, disinterested governments, ill-considered law enforcement policies, greedy power games of authorities, or the still prevalent lenient approach to white collar crime. Within these institutional weaknesses one must always search for actors of flesh and blood: from captains of industry to the street cop; from the power builders in board rooms to the clerk at his desk. At all levels greed satisfaction through corrupt rent seeking contributes to a weakening of our social fabric.

This is not a very surprising observation. Basically it is the same old song: retrospectively humans remain true to themselves in manifesting the same basic greedy criminal conduct over time and space. One would almost resign to such a tedious story, if it were not for the good message: one always finds counter-movements working against such abuses. Whether and to what extent such counter-movements are coherent and cost-effective is difficult to judge, though all these lofty intentions must be followed with a critical eye. The crime-money hunt has a quarter-century history by now, but the crime-monies still abound; all new EU Member States have Anti Corruption Agencies, but corruption continues to be rampant in those countries; the financial sector has been turned inside out, but old habits have returned.

This thirteenth volume of the Cross-border Crime Colloquium, a mainstay in the critical discourse on crime and crime-control in Europe, contains the peer-reviewed contributions of 27 international experts shedding light on the wide range of topics related to greed and crime: corruption, money laundering, underground economy and criminal financial policy. The chapters are based on empirical data or critical theorising and highlight new aspects of this field..

About CCC

The Cross-Border Crime Colloquium is an annual event since 1999. It brings together experts on international organised (economic) crime to discuss the latest developments in empirical research, legislation and law enforcement, with a special geographical focus on Western, Central, and Eastern Europe. The Colloquia aim at building bridges in three respects: between East and West Europe, between scholars and practitioners, and between old and young.
