The Helsinki Economics of Crime Workshop will provide an opportunity for scholars in the economics of crime field to present and discuss their work. The meeting will contain both contributed and invited papers. The keynote speakers are David Deming from Harvard University and Jennifer Doleac from Texas A&M University.

The conference is organized by VATT Institute for Economic Research in collaboration with Aalto University School of Business and Helsinki Graduate School of Economics.

The conference will start in the morning on Monday, June 8 and extends to the afternoon on Tuesday, June 9. The meeting takes place in central Helsinki, at a historical prison converted to a unique boutique hotel. Accommodation is reserved for workshop participants. If accepted, accommodation will be paid for by the conference organizers. We are also able to provide limited support for travel expenses for presenting authors on an as needed basis (max. 500 EUR). 

We are still waiting to make a final decision regarding whether we will be able to safely hold our economics of crime conference. In light of that, we are extending the deadline to submit papers to April 15. We hope by then that we will also be able to make a final decision on the conference.

To submit a paper for consideration, please email your submission to [email protected] by April 15, 2020.
