Professor Verity Winship has authored a new post for the Oxford Business Law Blog titled "Mapping Enforcement Networks." An excerpt follows:
"Many modern problems—money laundering, investor fraud, cryptocurrency abuses—cannot be addressed effectively by solitary agencies. Instead, cross-border and borderless problems require a coordinated response from multiple entities in separate locations with different expertise and roles. They require, in other words, a network. But measuring disparate and dispersed coordination is difficult. This difficulty is particularly acute in the context of investigation and enforcement, which often take place behind closed doors. My forthcoming article, ‘Enforcement Networks’, develops a novel approach to quantifying how networks of domestic and international agencies coordinate in civil (non-criminal) enforcement."
