Welcome to our Blog "coporate crime stories"
we, the Heidelberg Group for Organization Studies (HeiGOS), would like to offer you pointed and stimulating "Corporate Crime Stories" on a monthly basis. These stories will be drawn from the current research of our team at Heidelberg University’s Max-Weber-Institute for Sociology that is concerned with “Corporate Crime and Organizational Deviance Studies".
We will provide you with a sociological spotlight on high-profile cases of organizational crime, corruption and manipulation. As a consequence, we are less concerned with the individual offenders and their psychology. Instead, we focus on the actors’ constellations, on the incentives and opportunity structures that they face, and that eventually cause companies, hospitals, sports associations or other organizations and their personnel to leave legal tracks.
We understand our blog as a platform for an open and constructive culture of discussion. We would like to give you an entertaining, but nevertheless insightful reading, with an appropriate share of background information. Due to the provisional nature of these contributions, we do not claim to establish absolute truths. Instead, they are meant to provide a basis to develop scientifically reasonable opinions.
If you do not wish to receive our blog-posts in the future, please send us a short E-mail to the address below to be removed from the mailing list.
