Crime is not just a reality ‘out there’, but also the outcome of social constructions: crime is often ‘in the eye of the beholder’. When society changes, that is the ‘beholders’, new developments can be seen as disturbances, which under the pressure of the concerned citizens, can be constructed as crimes. This criminalising construction can be observed concerning irregular migration: refugees, asylum seekers or just irregular migrant workers, seeking their luck in Europe. Regardless of their legal status they are looked upon as a (crime) threat and associated with human smuggling and exploitation of trafficked persons, whether or not in combination with organised crime. A general driver to new crime constructions is the ‘fear of . . .’, an uneasiness driving policy and law makers into the direction of new crime constructions or widening existing ones, such as money-laundering. This is discussed in this volume of the 19th Cross-border Crime Colloquium, held in June 2018 in Kharkiv, consisting of peer-reviewed contributions from 25expert authors and young and upcoming researchers. They cover many issues at the centre of criminological and criminal policy debates, such as corruption, the mafi a, Chinese organised crime, irregular migration and arms traffi cking, examples of crossborder crimes that concern us all in Europe and beyond.

19 years of leading the troops form the front!


The annual Cross-Border-Crime Colloquium has been held 19 times now and the editors are working hard to get the 19th publication ready for press in time.

Throughout the past 19 years attendees have always been enthusiastic contributors of presentations and papers to be published in a volume that steadily follows within a year after the last colloquium. We would like to take the opportunity to say thanks to all of those who presented at and wrote for the colloquium.

Despite all the enthusiasm, of both authors and editors, it sometimes requires a more authoritative leader figure ;) to make sure all papers are submitted in time and revisions are made before the pressing deadlines dictated by the publisher and next year`s colloquium.

Petrus C. van Duyne has been the driving force behind (more than) 19 years of colloquia. He made the colloquia possible by organising them, presenting and co-presenting, contributing as author, co-author and editor-in-chief and chief-whip. By doing so, he provided a platform for both young academic talent to meet with seasoned experts in the field, to present research findings to an expert audience and share it with the wider world through the colloquium publications.

So, thank you Petrus! You have been a true General, leading the troops from the front!

Now available for ordering: The Janus-faces of cross-border-crime in Europe
Petrus C. van Duyne, Tomáš Strémy, Jackie H. Harvey, Georgios A. Antonopoulos, Klaus von Lampe (eds.), Eleven Publishing 2018 Portland (US),ISBN: 978‐94‐6236‐871‐2 (348 pages)

Europe is changing rapidly, which may also have a bearing on its criminal landscape. This does not mean that all sorts of new crime are emerging: a large part of the crimes remains pro t-oriented and is committed by known modus operandi.  at is the old face of crime. Amidst the traditional landscape new faces of crime can be identified.  The internet is such a new face which emerges among others in the sex industry. This is as old as the human race, with all the related abuses and exploitation. But the internet gives it also a new face because of its broad reach and related opportunities, negative as well as positive.  is volume provides other examples of this two-faced Janus head of crime. Old criminal trades, such as the illegal cigarette market, synthetic drugs and criminal exploitation of human labour, but also new criminal specialisations, new professional and industrial skills developed by ‘old’ ethnic minorities on various crime markets in central Europe. Meanwhile, the on-going illegal migrations continue to exert their influence on the perception of crime: while the actual prevalence of most types of crime decreases, fear of crime continues to increase.  The  flow of migrants is unrelated to this outcome but it impacts nevertheless on the perception of crime.  is volume of the 18th Cross-border Crime Colloquium, held in Bratislava in thespring of 2017, contains the peer-reviewed contributions of 22 European experts and up-and-coming researchers. Their chapters cover a broad  eld of crime in which the double faced Janus head can be discerned: illegal migrants, criminal markets, corruption, money laundering and organised crime, highlighting many new aspects.
