2011 Conference

UACES Collaborative research Network (CRN):

Policing and European Studies.

Call for Papers: Policing the Frontier in Post-Stockholm Europe.

Since the publication of the EU’s Stockholm Programme, there is now a strategy which will bring many changes to EU cross border policing, both within the EU, and with third countries. As such, this UACES funded collaborative conference on Policing and European Studies will be holding its second mini conference in order to explore these important political and legal changes. This network plans to hold its second mini-conference on this theme, on the 25th February 2011 at the University of Abertay Dundee.

We invite research papers (maximum of 6,000 words) from doctoral and early career researchers, as well as more established academics, practitioners and policy makers, from across a range of disciplines such as police and security studies, law, criminology and sociology, political science, International Relations, European studies, psychology, and management and organisational change.

Proposals for papers are invited covering these strands, in particular, but in no means confined to the following areas;

  • Policing human trafficking and the EU,
  • Policing economic crime in the EU,
  • Policing political crime in the EU,
  • Policing drugs trafficking in the EU.

Please send an abstract of 150 – 200 words to the organisers by the 30th September 10. You will be notified if your application is successful by Friday the 15th October 10, with registration for the mini – conference being opened after that date.

NB: Limited funding will be available to assist with expenses of PhD students / early career academics.

Please contact the mini-conference organisers if you require further information as to this mini-conference, or the research network generally.
