European White-Collar Crime

From corporate corruption and the facilitation of money laundering, to food fraud and labour exploitation, European citizens continue to be confronted by serious corporate and white-collar crimes.

Presenting an original series of provocative essays, this book offers a European framing of white-collar crime. Experts from different countries foreground what is unique, innovative or different about white-collar and corporate crimes that are so strongly connected to Europe, including the tensions that exist within and between the nation-states of Europe, and within the institutions of the European region.

This European voice provides an original contribution to discourses surrounding a form of crime which is underrepresented in current criminological literature.

"This collection reconnects white-collar and corporate crime with Europe. It illuminates Europe’s rich tapestry of local and supranational institutions, convergence and divergence, and powerfully challenges mainstream understandings in our field." Susanne Karstedt, Griffith University

"This comprehensive exploration of white-collar and corporate crime in Europe, penned by the most eminent internationally known scholars, is an outstanding contribution that offers cohesive frameworks, new perspectives, and needed narratives." Mary Dodge, University of Colorado Denver
