Crime Survey 2011

The Global Economic Crime Survey 2011 is a biennial survey on the impact of fraud within the business sector and has resulted in the most extensive overview of economic criminality that is currently available. The survey has been carried out under the leadership of prof. dr. Kai Bussman of the Economy & Crime Research Centre of the Martin Luther University in Halle in Germany, and prof. dr. Wim Huisman and dr. Adriaan Denkers of the Criminology department of the Faculty of Law of VU Amsterdam.

The survey shows that, among others, a quarter of the internationally operating Dutch companies are prepared to make concessions to their own anti-corruption policy if it will lead to an advantage for their business. Yet 58% of the large and medium-sized companies consider having a compliance programme as a competitive advantage.
