An elusive breed of criminal entrepreneurs from China known as the Big Circle Boys remain an intrigue to organised crime specialists. Apart from anecdotal reporting, little is known about who they are or how they work. Confusingly, they have been coined with a number of organizational descriptors ranging from ‘cartel’, ‘black society’, ‘organised criminal group’, ‘mafia group’, ‘gang’, ‘criminal enterprise’, ‘criminal groupings’, and ‘non-entity.’ In this book colloquium, a panel of speakers will discuss Alex Chung’s recent book: Chinese Criminal Entrepreneurs in Canada, Volume I and Volume II and explore the BCB’s criminal undertakings. Participants: Alex Chung, Research Fellow in University College London's Department of Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy Denis Galligan, Emeritus Professor of Socio-Legal Studies and Director of Programmes, Foundation for Law, Justice and Society, Oxford Daniel Silverstone, Director, Liverpool Centre for Advanced Policing Studies Joe Whittle, PhD Candidate, Liverpool Uni
