We were very much looking forward to hosting you here in Helsinki. Unfortunately, due to current events we have reached the difficult decision to move the Helsinki Economics of Crime Workshop to Summer 2021. We were really hoping to be able to host the workshop this year and so held off as long as possible in making this decision, but with the current travel restrictions and recommendations it does not seem possible to do this safely.

We will announce the dates and details for the 2021 conference as soon as we have them finalized. If you planned to submit this year, please consider submitting again next year! We will have a fantastic event. Until then, stay safe and keep churning out great economics of crime papers for all of us to learn from and to inform better policy.
