State-Corporate Crime


The concept of state-corporate crime refers to crimes that result from the relationship between the policies of the state and the policies and practices of commercially motivated corporations. The term was coined by Kramer and Michalowski in 1990. While the subject of numerous case studies and theoretical debates, state-corporate crime as a criminological focus remains in its infancy.
