The Migration Policy Centre at the European University Institute (EUI) in coordination with the UNODC - United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime - is sponsoring an event exploring the dynamics of organized crime and gender on 11-13 July 2018 in Florence, Italy.

The conference aims to explore:

  1. The gender and gendered dynamics present in current debates on organized crime from the perspective of its actors, including offenders, victims and as well as persons working in the criminal justice system.
  2. The operationalization of gender in the organization and structure of organized criminal groups, including but not limited to cases of trafficking in persons and smuggling of migrants.
  3. Case studies concerning the gender dynamics present in organized criminal activities.
  4. Empirical research examining the gender dynamics present in but not limited to money laundering, corruption, obstruction of justice, food fraud, the manufacturing of counterfeit medical products, trafficking in cultural property, drug trafficking, wildlife trafficking, and in particular, trafficking in persons and smuggling of migrants.
  5. The gender/ed impact of criminal justice system’s responses to organized crime in different regions of the world, including the perspectives of female criminal justice practitioners and offenders.

Organizers welcome submissions from all disciplines. They seek research that focuses on the linkages between organized crime and gender. Abstracts documenting empirical and ethnographic research are especially encouraged.
