Profile

Lieselot Bisschop’s core areas of interest and expertise are environmental harm, corporate crime, organized crime and their governance. Past and ongoing studies have for instance focused on e-waste trafficking and planned obsolescence of electronics, wildlife, gold and timber trafficking, shipbreaking and coastal land loss. Next to projects on environmental crime, her research focuses on public and private control and prevention of organized crime (e.g. drugs trafficking via port of Rotterdam) and subversive crime [ondermijning]. The difficult balance between public and private interests and between public and private governance is what continues to intrigue her and inspires her research, in which she tries to strike a balance between academic and societal relevance. Lieselot is a member of the multidisciplinary research team of the Erasmus Initiative on Dynamics of Inclusive Prosperity and the Department of Criminology of ESL. She previously worked as a postdoctoral research fellow for the Research Fund Flanders (FWO) and as an assistant professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. She holds a PhD in criminology from Ghent University which focused on the governance of transnational environmental crime, with a specific focus on the illegal transports of e-waste and tropical timber connected to the Belgian harbor of Antwerp. Prior to her PhD research she worked as a researcher for the Centre for Policing and Security (Belgium) on topics of police leadership.
