Challenges in the Field of Economic and Financial Crime in Europe and the US

Financial Crime In The Eu [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Challenges in the Field of Economic and Financial Crime in Europe and the US by Katalin Ligeti,Vanessa Franssen Book Resume:

In the past few years, criminal justice systems have faced important global challenges in the field of economic and financial crime. The 2008 financial crisis revealed how strongly financial markets and economies are interconnected and illustrated that misconduct in the economic and financial sectors is often of a systemic nature, with wide-spread consequences for a large number of victims. The prevention, control and punishment of such crimes is thus confronted with a strong globalisation. Moreover, continuous technological evolutions and socio-economic developments make the distinction between socially desirable and undesirable behaviour more problematic. Besides, economic and financial misconduct is notoriously difficult to detect and investigate. In light of these challenges, legislators and law enforcers have been searching for adequate responses to combat economic and financial crime by adapting existing policies, norms and practices and by creating new enforcement mechanisms. The purpose of this volume is to analyse those challenges in the field of economic and financial crime from different perspectives, and to examine which particular solutions criminal justice systems across Europe give to those challenges. The volume has four parts. The first part focuses on a number of key questions with respect to substantive criminal law, whereas the second part will address issues affecting the administration of justice and criminal procedure. Part three then explores particular challenges concerning multi-agency cooperation and multi-disciplinary investigations. Finally, part four will concentrate on issues regarding shared or integrated enforcement models.

Corruption and Organized Crime in Europe

Financial Crime In The Eu [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Corruption and Organized Crime in Europe by Philip Gounev,Vincenzo Ruggiero Book Resume:

In Corruption and Organised Crime in Europe, Gounev and Ruggiero present a discussion of the relation between organized criminals and corruption in the EU’s 27 Member States. The book draws on research and scholarly work the editors carried out, respectively, within the Center for the Study of Democracy (CSD) in Bulgaria, and within academic institutions, as well as on behalf of the European Commission and the United Nations. Combining empirical data and theoretical debates, the book focuses on three main areas of the relationship between corruption and organised crime: public bodies, the private sector and criminal markets. It presents the findings of a recent research project carried out by the CSD on behalf of the European Commission, providing an analysis of the specific national contexts in which corruption and organized crime thrive. The essays also address institutional responses and policies, focusing particularly on how EU Member States attempt to sever the links between the official economy, the political sphere and organized crime. The second part of the book presents case studies, written by some of the foremost international experts on the subject matter, analysing corrupt exchange and criminal organisations, concentrating on specific European countries – Bulgaria, France, Greece, Italy, Russia, Spain and the UK. As the first comprehensive study of corruption and organised crime in the countries of the European Union, the book will be a valuable resource for students and scholars of criminology, sociology, law and international politics, as well policy makers and law-enforcement agencies.

Investigating European Fraud in the EU Member States

Financial Crime In The Eu [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Investigating European Fraud in the EU Member States by Alessandro Bernardi,Daniele Negri Book Resume:

This book offers a detailed overview of the rules regarding criminal investigations into financial-economic criminality in the EU's main legal systems. These rules have become fundamental to the effective protection of the Union's financial interests. It undertakes a comparative study of six national legislatures (Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Poland, the UK) which serve as paradigms of the different judicial systems existing in the Union, in order to offer a complete overview of the different approaches to financial-economic investigation in the EU. The work is further enriched with cross–sectional essays that deal with the more general issues, such as data-protection and the future of investigations in the view of the establishment of the European Public Prosecutor's Office (or EPPO). This provides a wider perspective on the themes considered. The book also examines trans-national issues, providing essential context to the EU's legislative instruments intended to protect the financial interests of the Union.

Chasing Criminal Money

Financial Crime In The Eu [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Chasing Criminal Money by Katalin Ligeti,Michele Simonato Book Resume:

The fight against dirty money is not a new topic, nor a recent problem. It has existed within international and national agendas since the 1980s. Nonetheless, the evolving complexity of criminal skills and networks; the increasingly global dimension of crime; the financial crisis; and the alleged unsatisfactory results of the efforts hitherto undertaken cause us to re-pose and re-discuss some questions. This book addresses several issues concerning the reasons, objectives and scope of national and supranational strategies targeting criminal money, as well as the concrete modalities to overcome its obstacles. The main objective is to explore where the EU stands and where it ought to go, providing useful input for policy-makers and further research. Nevertheless, the problems are not limited to the EU area, and assets – particularly money – cross EU borders much more easily than people do. The reflections developed in the chapters, therefore, aim at going beyond these EU borders. The book is divided into two parts. The first one focuses on the core of asset recovery policies, namely confiscation or forfeiture laws, and explores in particular some issues concerning the respect of fundamental rights. The second part addresses other problematic aspects related to the asset recovery process, such as the return of assets to victim countries, the cross-border investigations on dirty money, and the social use of confiscated assets.

Fighting Financial Crime in the Global Economic Crisis

Fighting Financial Crime in the Global Economic Crisis by Nicholas Ryder,Umut Turksen,Sabine Hassler Book Resume:

Many commentators, regulatory agencies and politicians have blamed the risky behaviour of both financial institutions and their actors for the collapse of the United States sub-prime mortgage market which in turn precipitated the global 'Credit Crunch'. This edited volume explores how financial crime played a significant role in the global economic crisis. The volume features contributions from internationally renowned academic and practitioner experts in the field who pinpoint some of the most important facets of financial crime which have emerged over recent years. Key subjects include: the possibility of criminalising reckless risk-taking on the financial markets; the duty of banks to prevent money-laundering and corruption; the growth of the Shadow Banking System; and the manipulation of LIBOR by banks. The book illustrates the global nature of financial crime, and highlights the complex relationships between regulatory bodies, law enforcement agencies and private actors in the attempt to limit the harmful effect of white collar crime on the stability of the financial sector. This book will be of great use and interest to scholars, practitioners and students within the field of financial crime, banking and finance law, and international political economy.

The Fight Against Fraud on the EU's Finances

Financial Crime In The Eu [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Fight Against Fraud on the EU's Finances by Great Britain: Parliament: House of Lords: European Union Committee Book Resume:

The report The Fight Against Fraud On The EU's Finances (HL 158) examines the effectiveness of the EU's system of protection from financial fraud, and identifies a number of weaknesses. EU law obliges both the European Commission and the Member States to combat fraud on the EU's finances. However, the onus to protect the EU's financial interests falls mainly on the individual Member States because they are responsible for administering 80% of the EU funds. The 404 million Euros cited by the Commission in its annual report offers only a glimpse of the levels of fraud perpetrated against the EU's budget, the Committee believes five billion Euros is a closer figure. Evidence presented to the Committee suggests that some Member States do not take their anti-fraud responsibilities seriously. Responsibilities for anti-fraud should include: (i) looking for fraud against the EU's budget; (ii) informing the relevant EU authorities

Judicial Co-Operation in the Eu by N.A Book Resume:

Eurojust (the EU Judicial Co-operation Unit) was established by a Council Decision in February 2002 to facilitate judicial co-operation in criminal matters within the EU. It comprises a group of full-time judges and prosecutors, one from each of the 25 EU member states, who assist national authorities in investigation and prosecuting serious cross-border crime, such as terrorism, drug trafficking, money laundering and trafficking in human beings. The Committees report finds that Eurojust has proved itself to be a highly effective means of facilitating co-operation in these matters, and notes that the Office of the European Public Prosecutor (to be established in due course) should build on its approach. Five key recommendations are made to further enhance the effectiveness of Eurojust including the need for data protection rules and for closer co-operation with Europol and the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF).
