What is IECC?
IECC, the International Economic Crime and Cybercrime Research Centre (IECC) at the Department of Law at Aalborg University, was founded in 2014.
The mission of IECC is to initiate and undertake research and organizing conferences etc. concerning all aspects of international economic crime and cybercrime.
The purpose is to enhance knowledge about these phenomena as well as to identify and improve means to combat them, while at the same time focusing on the fine line between law enforcement, including surveillance of citizens, and the citizens’ fundamental right to privacy and protection of personal data.
IECC cooperates with relevant authorities as well as private entities in order to make sure that the research is timely, relevant and useful. Although the main focus is on the law, IECC seeks out interdisciplinary collaborations and aim to invite experts from other scientific areas to participate in conferences and projects etc.
