In this timely Research Agenda, Barry Rider has assembled a cast of internationally renowned experts to identify the most pressing questions and issues around financial crime, helping to inform our understanding of how best to protect our economies and financial institutions.

The book begins by considering what is meant by the term ‘financial crime’, addressing how and to whom it causes harm, the ways in which we might evaluate its incidence and impact, and the increasing relevance of measures designed to disrupt economically-motivated criminals. Chapters explore the various factors that have led to the rise of financial crime in recent decades, from advances in technology to the practical issues in effective prevention and interdiction. Bringing together an array of perspectives from experts in law, criminology, and regulation and compliance, the book ultimately advances multiple agendas for future research to enhance our understanding of financial crime and better promote its prevention, containment, and management.

This incisive Research Agenda will be an invaluable resource for scholars of law, criminology, management studies, and compliance and risk. Its practical insights will also benefit criminal and regulatory lawyers, as well as legislators and researchers involved in the protection of their economies and financial institutions against financial crime.
Critical Acclaim
‘Professor Barry Rider, himself a first rate authority on economic crime, has corralled a team of 10 noted academics to produce a timely agenda for research into fraud. His theme of prevention, containment and management provides a convincing response to a neglected but vital sector of criminality which enjoys worryingly exponential growth.’
– Sir David Green CB QC, Former Director of the Serious Fraud Office

‘This is an impressive array of experts with practical experience of the fight against all kinds of financial crime. Their agenda for in-depth research into the surge facing legislators, prosecutors, courts and regulators is thought-provoking. Conclusion: unless Governments resource more research and take more effective measures to prevent and punish financial crime things will only get worse, everywhere and for everyone except the criminals.’
– Sir John Mummery, former Lord Justice of Appeal and former President of the Investigatory Powers Tribunal

‘The nature of financial crime has changed due to automation and globalisation. The research agenda needs to change too. This book provides the up-to-date guidance researchers need to use if they’re going to provide the advice society needs to battle economic crime.’
– Michael Mainelli, Chairman, Z/Yen Group, late Sheriff of the City of London 2019–2021
