Organised Crime in Asia: Governance and Accountability, Symposium

Broadhurst, Roderic G. & Ganapathy, Narayanan (2007) Organised Crime in Asia: Governance and Accountability, Symposium.


The Department of Sociology, National University of Singapore and the School of Justice, Queensland University of Technology sponsored a symposium on organised crime in Asia. The symposium held at the National University of Singapore on June 28-29, 2007 brought together, for the first time, law enforcement officers and academics from several different jurisdictions to discuss current perspectives about organised crime. The theme "Organised Crime in Asia: Governance and Accountability" explored the relevance of such criminal activities to corruption and capture of state agencies or agents in the furtherance of criminal enterprises. Nineteen distinguished speakers from several countries (Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, India, Australia, USA, Canada, United Kingdom, and Italy) spoke to the theme. The topics ranged across many of the issues involved such as the definition and trends in 'organised' crime, lethal violence, utilisation of the Internet, money laundering, problems of researching organised crime, drug and human trafficking. Contributors: Ko-lin Chin,Peter Grabosky, Raymond Choo and Russell Smith,Kent Lee, Nicholas Dorn and Mike Levi, Mark Findlay, Vincenzo Ruggerio, Rebecca La Forgia and Marinella Marmo, James Sheptycki, Margaret Lewis, R. Thilagaraj, Noriyoshi Takemura, Mohd Kassim Mohamad, Dan Ng, and Yik-Kon Teh.
