Research output: Book/ReportBook


Financial crime is a new and exciting area of study, research and publication for Australian academics and practitioners. This text of selected readings provides a comprehensive overview of key financial crime related topics and legislation and has been published to complement and provide the foundation for readings by postgraduate students undertaking the Fraud and Financial Crime Program; and the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing Program; within the Australian Graduate School of Policing and Security (AGSPS), Charles Sturt University.These postgraduate programs are designed to promote best practice in fraud, financial crime, anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing investigation, compliance, prevention and management in the private and public sectors. The programs have been designed with the objective of being a 'meeting place' between the professional world of practice and the academic world of theory and research.This text, like the postgraduate programs, examines the theory, policy, regulation and practice of financial crime. The authors critically examine specific offences within the financial crime arena and the skills required for a successful identification, investigation and management of this risk. The text also discusses the roles and responsibilities of the various persons and agencies involved in financial crime prevention, compliance and management.The text draws upon material from the following Thomson Reuters (Professional) Australia titles: Bronitt S, and McSherry, B, Principles of Criminal Law (3rd ed, 2010); Dietz, A and Buttle, J, Anti Money Laundering Handbook (2008); Fitzgerald B, Fitzgerald A, Clark E, Middleton, G and Lim Y F, Internet and E-Commerce Law, Business and Policy (2011); Legg, M, Regulation, Litigation and Enforcement (2011); and Marmo, M, de Lint, W and Palmer, D (eds), Crime and Justice: A Guide to Criminology (4th ed, 2011)
