Abstract:

This workshop was motivated by global concerns of wildlife crime, including poaching, wildlife trafficking and associated environmental crime in countries around the world these international problems are leading to the extinction of species and the destruction of ecosystems. The goal of this workshop was to bring together leading researchers from computational and social sciences, conservation biology as well as criminologists, who are focused on wildlife crime, as well as practitioners and other interested researchers. We expect such an interdisciplinary gathering to improve our understanding of wildlife crime, as well as provide shed light on key challenges and interdisciplinary research opportunities in this area, with the ultimate aim of improving wildlife security. The workshop was held in Washington DC, July 1-2, 2014, at the Washington DC office of the University of Southern California.
