Abstract

This article addresses the criminological aspects of subsidy fraud crimes targeting the financial interests of the European Communities. Among the issues covered are the way subsidy fraud crimes are being committed and in which fields the financial interests of the EC are in particular danger. Special attention is given in this context to agricultural subsidies. The identity of those committing the crimes is being looked at a bit more closely as well. We will look at statistical issues such as the age, gender and nationality of the criminals and try to draw conclusions regarding the prevention of subsidy fraud crimes.
