Venue: The Museum of London, 150 London Wall, London EC2Y 5HN
After a very successful first event in Montreal last year, hosted by the International Centre for Comparative Criminology (ICCC) at the Université de Montréal, this year’s Policing Flows Workshop is hosted by the Criminal Justice Centre, Queen Mary University of London, in London on December 5-6, 2016.
The workshop engages with the areas of policing and security research that particularly examine how flows of people, information and goods have influenced policing and/or how policing intervenes with and shapes those flows. Types of transnational flows/policing that could potentially be examined include (but are not limited to), terrorism (foreign fighters), illicit substances, financial flows (e.g. money laundering), migration, data (cybercrime), wildlife (environmental crime) and protected national heritage. The workshop aims to tease out the more theoretical, methodological, epistemological and empirical approaches to studying policing of flows and through flows.
