This foundation subject examines criminological explanations for fraud and financial crime and is instrumental in grounding students in the study of this discipline. It explores research paradigms that have shaped the understanding of how and why financial crimes occur in different organisational and jurisdictional settings. The subject highlights and critiques connections between theoretical explanations for financial crimes and how those crimes are controlled to identify why some fraud prevention strategies are more successful than others. It also examines the role of the media and societal perceptions in shaping financial crime policy.
