  • University of Chicago and London School of Economics are co-hosting a workshop on the Economics of Crime and Policing, held at the Becker Friedman Institute, University of Chicago on 17-18 May, 2018.

    The economics of crime and justice is a booming field, owing largely to new sources of data and methodological innovation. This conference represents the first of an annual series to be held in alternate years in Chicago and 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.

    The deadline to submit papers has passed. A full conference agenda is forthcoming.

    Information will be updated on the BFI Chicago website.

    The 2020 Economics of Crime Conference will take place at the London School of Economics on 21-22 May 2020.
