Freiburg Conference takes place

The AIDP Conference on Economic Crime took place in Freiburg 18-21 June 2018

The Conference of the AIDP (Association Internationale de Droit Penal) took place in Freiburg between 18 and 21 June, hosted by the Max-Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law. One of the aims of the meeting was to draft a number of resolutions on the legal control of economic crime, either through criminal law or other legal regimes. I presented a thematic paper on the EU system of regulating business cartels as a model for legal control in this context. Delegates came from mainly a range of continental European countries. It was an opportunity to meet with established research colleagues Vanessa Franssen (Liege), Anna Blachnio-Parzych (Warsaw), and Raimo Lahti (Helsinki).
