Deakin University is hosting the Illicit Network Workshop on 11-12 December 2023, following the 2023 ANZSOC Conference.
The Illicit Networks Workshop (INW) includes the leading scholars and analysts from across the world that share a research interest in the use of network analysis in furthering the understanding of the activities of individuals, groups and organisations engaged in organised crime, gangs, transnational crime, terrorism, economic crime and corruption issues. The INW is designed with the goal of maximising meaningful and on-going knowledge exchange among researchers, policy makers and those involved in policy, programme and practical engagement with illicit networks. While some members draw heavily on quantitative social network analysis, others utilise other methods (e.g., ethnography) for studying illicit networks. The focus is less on the relative merits of approach and more on the rigour of the science and value of the insights to theory building and practical policy solutions.
