The Transnational Environmental Crime (TEC) project at ANU, funded by the Australian Research Council and the Australian Government’s Department of the Environment (DoE) under the ARC Linkage Scheme is nearing its three-year milestone. We are therefore delighted to announce the dates for our next conference. This will provide an opportunity for members of the research team to report their research findings against the three project themes:

  • understanding the ways in which environmental commodities that are either sourced illegally or destined for illegal markets are traded;

  • understanding the organisational and asset structures of criminal networks involved in TEC; and

  • understanding the strengths, weaknesses and challenges of policy and operational law enforcement responses.

Speakers include

Professor Lorraine Elliott, ANU

Dr Kimberley Dripps, Deputy Secretary (DoE)

Professor Greg Rose, University of Wollongong

Julie Ayling, ANU

Grant Pink, DoE
