Tallinn, Estonia
Call for abstracts

The European Crime Prevention Conference is a biennial conference organised by the Secretariat of the EUCPN and funded by the European Commission. The Conference offers a forum to share knowledge and experiences regarding crime prevention across the European Union. It welcomes policymakers, practitioners and academics, but maintains a consistent focus on the frontline.

The third European Crime Prevention Conference is dedicated to the prevention of organised crime. What is the current state of organised crime prevention? What can we do to effectively prevent the recruitment of young people into organised crime? How can the administrative approach disrupt organised crime activities? Additionally, topics such as the prevention of online fraud and trafficking in human beings will be explored.

The full programme will be uploaded soon. Starting from 1 March 2024, registration will be publicly available.
