Art, Crime, and Law: The criminal dynamics of art theft in the European Union

Naomi was awarded one of the competitive University Doctoral Studentships in the United Kingdom. Her research investigates the criminal dynamics of art theft in the European Union. She is especially interested in the policing and securitisation of art theft in the European Union, and how museums deal with threats to their collections. Together with Interpol, she developed a database of stolen art works containing thefts from 14 EU countries, which she uses to analyse the movements of theft.

Student: Naomi Oosterman
