SMLC Seminar: The fight against money laundering, terrorist financing, and organised crime in Europe
 
 
Date: 20 March 2019 
 
School of Modern Languages and Cultures HKU has the pleasure of inviting you to the SMLC Seminar: 

The fight against money laundering, terrorist financing, and organised crime in Europe

Dr. Roland Vogt
Assistant Professor of European Studies, The University of Hong Kong

20 Mar 2019 (Wed) 4:30-6:00pm
Room 4.36, Run Run Shaw Tower, Centennial Campus, HKU

Europe’s security and its security architecture are challenged from many different angles. While much attention is focused on Europe’s defence posture, it is the internal security practices of EU member states that have undergone a significant transformation. How do EU member states respond to the risks of terrorism, money laundering, and transnational organised criminal networks? Can and do EU member states learn from each other’s experiences in addressing these challenges? This talk examines the increasing disjuncture between pressing internal security risks on the one hand and the difficulties in many member states to adapt their domestic intelligence and security services to these new tasks. 

Dr Roland Vogt is Assistant Professor of European Studies at the University of Hong Kong. His research examines the role of leadership, perceptions, reputations, identities, and social practices in the conduct of European foreign and security policy. He is the author of Personal Diplomacy. Political Leadership and Critical Junctures of European Integration (Routledge, 2017), European National Identities. Elements. Transitions. Conflicts (with A. Leutzsch and W. Cristaudo, Routledge, 2014), and Europe and China. Strategic Partners or Rivals? (Hong Kong University Press, 2012). His articles have appeared in International Affairs and other major journals. He is currently conducting grant-funded research on comparative state practices in Europe to counter the threats of money laundering, terrorism, and organised crime.
