Art crime is more than a romanticised fascination

Dr. Naomi Oosterman publishes article in Oxford Bibliographies

Dr. Naomi Oosterman has published an entry entitled "Art Crime" in Oxford Bibliographies in Criminology. Oxford Bibliographies is a peer-reviewed database that contains literature citations and references to various topics in, predominantly, the social sciences and humanities.

"Art crime is a type of crime that quite often triggers the public’s fascination. Images of gentlemen thieves, large-scale heists, and elites illicitly engaging with high-priced works of art are one of the first things that come to mind. However, art crime is a type of crime that presents severe problems in countries around the world", Naomi states in the introduction of her new publication.

In her entry, Oosterman provides references and summarising information of nearly 120 publications concerning art crime topics such as art theft, trafficking, organised crime, and policing. 

The entry can be found on the website of the Oxford Bibliographies.
