About the course 'Digital Crime'

The problem of digital crime goes far beyond the crimes committed on the Internet: nowadays, almost all crime can leave digital traces. The Internet creates unique opportunities for criminal activities, and legislators are always chasing a moving target as they try to bring laws up to speed to address new online threats. Despite all the pressure to harmonise legal frameworks to tackle digital crime, efforts to develop international solutions are slow and problematic. Finally, nobody can expect governments and their agencies to fight digital crime alone, but what is the role of private industry and other stakeholders in this fight?

A critical review of existing knowledge and research is essential for making informed policy decisions to address the problem of digital crime. The course, therefore, focuses on the research skill of critical evaluation. Students will learn how to assess the validity of existing research by critically evaluating the way the knowledge was produced. This includes, inter alia, the assessment of research methods, design, and the reliability of empirical data. Students will be able to assess the validity of research outcomes in policy fields relevant to their future professional or academic environments, and shape new research agendas for emerging policy topics, not only in the area of digital crime, but in other fields throughout their careers.
