Researching white-collar crime

an Australian perspective

Abstract

Scoping the nature and size of white‐collar and corporate crime is a daunting task, as this handbook testifies. Scoping the content and extent of scholarship in these fields in one jurisdiction is only slightly less challenging. While the former is vast, the latter is more constrained given the limited number of scholars capable of and interested in researching these subjects.
This chapter surveys a selection of Australian scholarship in white‐collar and corporate crime published between 2000 and 2018 – an arbitrary period selected only because the turn of a century seems to be a traditional marker of epochs. This handbook has classified the four main categories of crime encompassed under the rubric “white‐collar crime” as occupational crime, corporate crime, government crime, and state‐corporate crime. Australian scholarship touches on many of these areas, some in more depth than others. The following overview is partial in two respects: first it is not comprehensive, and second, it is biased, reflecting this author’s interests. It discusses just a few Australian publications out of hundreds. It excludes such topics as environmental crime, professional and occupational crime and misconduct, intellectual property crime, cyber‐enabled crime, money laundering, confiscation of the proceeds of crime, whistleblowing, serious financial crime, fraud in higher education and research, victim support and compensation, unexplained wealth, and corruption, all of which have been the subject of substantial literatures.
