Second Interdisciplinary Insights on Fraud and Corruption (I2FC 2014) Conference: Multiple Perspectives of the Shadow Economy

Call for papers

The economic crisis and the shrinking of tax revenues have given governments all around the world the impetus to address shadow economy more actively. This increasing interest is shared by policymakers, economists and other social scientists, law enforcement agencies and lawmakers, who analyze the issue from distinct perspectives such as labour markets, public finance, taxation, capital markets, law and regulation, criminal activities, and psychology and economic behavior.

The second Interdisciplinary Insights on Fraud and Corruption (I2FC 2014) conference aims to bring together researchers, academics and practitioners from different backgrounds to exchange and share their experiences, ideas, and research results about all aspects of the shadow economy, and discuss the challenges in this field and policies adopted.

The conference topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • tax evasion
  • money laundering
  • informal labour market
  • theoretical and empirical models of underground economy
  • social cohesion, norms and ethics
  • perceptions, and expectations in the shadow economy
  • corruption, fraud and organized crime
