This is the second annual Conference on the Economics of Crime and Justice and the first of the series to be held in London. We aim to assemble scholars from around the world to discuss recent work on issues involving the economics of crime and the criminal justice system. We are particularly interested in studies that address pressing policy issues, long-standing problems in the field, or innovative methods.

Please submit your papers for consideration by December 31, 2020, sending your paper (preferred) or abstract to cep.events@lse.ac.uk with Chicago/LSE Crime in the subject header. Authors of accepted papers will be notified in late January.
