Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this study is to explore the extent to which white-collar crime makes sense. Understanding business offending reflects the degree of sensemaking among respondents in the current survey research. Making sense implies a number of factors that influence understandability. An understandable act is not necessarily acceptable or justifiable. At a university in Iran, criminal law and criminology students answered a questionnaire regarding their extent of understanding of business offenders.

Design/methodology/approach

The research method is the use of experimental data using a questionnaire in one of the units of the Islamic Azad University in Iran, where 300 students were invited to respond to an online survey.

Findings

The respondents found it on average understandable that top executives and other privileged individuals abuse their positions to commit financial crime when they have problems with their personal finances, when the business struggles financially and faces the threat of bankruptcy, and when they offer bribes in corrupt countries to obtain business contracts. The extent of understandability varies with a number of propositions in the convenience theory.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the legal barriers to termination of an insurance arrangement where there is suspicion of money laundering when paying insurance premiums.

Design/methodology/approach

Trials in court between insurance firm and outlaw biker gangs regarding insurance of their clubhouses.

Findings

Protection of insured seems more important than prevention of money laundering.

Research limitations/implications

This is a case study that cannot be generalized.

Practical implications

Anti money laundering is difficult when competing with other considerations.

Social implications

Accusations of money laundering is not sufficient to terminate an insurance contract. Rather, solid evidence is needed.

Originality/value

This is a real case of failing anti-money laundering efforts.

Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to understand the involvement of women in white-collar crime (WCC) also referred to as pink-collar crimes. WCC is present around the globe and has created a word for itself.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper is designed by studying the WCC in the area of Iran, Portugal, Norway, India and the USA.

Findings

The paper attempts to move beyond the traditional perspectives of emancipation versus focal concern, which argue that less inequality will increase women involvement in WCC versus women socializing into accepting responsibilities for social concerns by caring for others.

Research limitations/implications

As the data is restricted, this study is based on the limited data available on the internet.

Originality/value

This paper is an original work of the authors.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this study is to compare women committing pink-collar and red-collar crimes in Iran. In the current study, the pink-collar crime, studying murder by women as red-collar criminals and the root of “pink-collar crime” is considered the related terms.

Design/methodology/approach

Descriptive analytical method is used in this article.

Findings

It was previously thought that white-collar crime has no victim, and it is not necessary to imprison the criminal or consider other punishments. There is no recognized solution for such crimes, as opposed to the legislature and the government’s efforts, and therefore, consumers, government, employees, companies and executives cannot realize these crimes or be aware of them. Unfortunately, recognizing red-collar crimes is impossible using the old, outdated set of laws, and new laws are required. The phenomenon of white- and red-collar crime is endless and must always be in the attention of society to prevent its dangerous consequences for the community.

Originality/value

Abstract

Information technology support for knowledge management can be classified into four categories of knowledge management technology projects. The first category of projects is concerned with end user tools that are made available to knowledge workers, the second category is information about who knows what, the third category is information from knowledge workers, and the final category is information systems solving knowledge problems. This paper reports results from an empirical study of law firms in Australia. While current projects in most firms were concerned with end user tools, few firms had projects storing information about who knows what, some firms were storing what they know, and few firms were implementing systems solving knowledge problems. Discriminant analysis indicates that firm size in terms of number of lawyers and IT department size in terms of number of IT personnel are significant determinants of category of knowledge management technology projects in each firm.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to conceptualize detectives in police investigations as knowledge workers.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper is based on a literature review covering knowledge organizations, police organizations, police investigations, and detectives as knowledge workers.

Findings

The paper finds that the changing role of the detective as a resource influences investigation performance in solving complex and organized crime.

Research limitations/implications

This exploratory research provides no final conclusions.

Practical implications

Leadership in police investigations needs to focus on knowledge management among detectives rather than information collection in each criminal case.

Originality/value

Until this paper, the secretive nature of the detective world has been unexplored by manpower researchers.

Abstract

A paradox seems to emerge when public information is priced without associated costs of electronic distribution. This paper investigates this paradox in light of recent Norwegian government policymaking. The picture seems to be that neither pricing principles nor practices are consistent with information policies, technological advances or theories of information economics.

Abstract

Purpose

This research is concerned with the validation of a maturity model for information technology outsourcing relationships. The paper aims to focus on this research.

Design/methodology/approach

This research is validating the cost, resource and partnership stages, respectively, as maturity stages in outsourcing relationships developed and proposed by Gottschalk and Solli‐Sæther.

Findings

First, stages of growth and benchmark variables were validated. Then, the evolving path of growth was examined. Limited support for the stage of growth model was found.

Practical implications

This paper suggests a broad range of organizational activities and structures to guide development from one stage of maturity to the next. To stimulate growth developments, individuals and organizations have to understand and experience transitional events in relationship maturity.

Originality/value

Validation procedure linking stages to benchmark variables is presented. Future empirical research should rephrase some of the authors benchmark variables as well as measurement issues concerned with stages of growth.
