Forthcoming events

12th Transatlantic Workshop on the Economics of Crime (TWEC)

September 24-25, 2020
Gothenburg, Sweden

This 12th workshop will continue the sequence of Economics of Crime workshops in Paris (2009), Bonn (2010), Torino (2011), Rotterdam (2012), Frankfurt (2013), Milan (2014), London (2015), Stockholm (2016), University of Pennsylvania (2017), Paris (2018), and Amsterdam (2019).

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.

2nd Gothenburg Workshop on Labour Economics & the Economics of Crime and Victimisation

September 5-6, 2019
Villa Sjötorp, Ljungskile, Sweden

External Speakers: Erik Plug (University of Amsterdam) and Matthew Lindquist (Stockholm University)
From Thursday to Friday, 5th-6th September 2019, our research group organised a workshop on labour economics and the economics of crime and victimisation. This followed the success of the first workshop in 2018.

As in the previous year, the workshop took place at Villa Sjötorp, north of Gothenburg, and this time included 10 senior and junior faculty members (and affiliates), 3 PhD students and 2 external speakers. The ‘internal’ presentations covered a range of topics at different stages of the research process and representing current research undertaken within the group (victimisation, crime, discrimination, labour supply, school choice, education, inequality). The external speakers each gave a presentation on current research highly related to the research interests within the group (education and marriage markets, prisons and health).

The organisers are grateful for generous funding from Handelsbanken which allowed them to organise this year’s workshop.

Gothenburg Workshop on Labour Economics & the Economics of Crime and Victimisation

September 7-8, 2018
Villa Sjötorp, Ljungskile, Sweden

External Speakers: Giovanni Mastrobuoni (Collegio Carlo Alberti/University of Essex) and Peter Fredriksson (Uppsala University)

From Friday, 7th September 2018, to Saturday, 8th September 2018, our research group organised a workshop on labour economics and the economics of crime and victimisation. The workshop took place at Villa Sjötorp, north of Gothenburg, and included nine senior and junior faculty members, six PhD students and two external speakers. The ‘internal’ presentations covered a range of topics at different stages of the research process and representing current research undertaken within the group (criminal victimisation, crime, racial disparities, unemployment, wages, labour supply, education, health interventions). The external speakers each gave a presentation on current research highly related to the research interests within the group (crime reporting of immigrants and victimisation, advance layoff notices and worker/firm behaviour).

The organisers (Anna Bindler and Nadine Ketel) are grateful for generous funding from Handelsbanken which allowed them to organise this year’s workshop.
