It will be held at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden from Thursday, September 24 to Friday, September 25, 2020. We aim to bring together researchers from both sides of the Atlantic to present and discuss their work, allowing for an in-depth interaction between those working on the empirical and theoretical analysis of crime and illegal behaviour.

The workshop will consist of two keynote lectures – to be given by Becky Pettit (University of Texas-Austin) and Katrine Løken (Norwegian School of Economics) – and 10 to 12 contributed papers.

The workshop is organized by the Department of Economics, University of Gothenburg.
