Cash-in-hand work and organised crime

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

Do those working on a cash-in-hand basis have links with organised crime? To what extent does off-the-books work overlap with the organised crime sector?

The School of Management working in cooperation with the multi-disciplinary Centre for Criminological Research (CCR), as part of the European Commission-funded CRIMPEV network, have been seeking answers to these questions.

To reveal the findings, Professor Joanna Shapland (School of Law, University of Sheffield), Professor Colin C Williams (School of Management, University of Sheffield) and Professor Paul Ponsaers (Ghent University) have guest edited a special issue of the International Journal of Social Economics entitled “The informal economy and its links to organised crime’.
