Personal profile

Research interests

Matthijs Nelemans is Professor of Financial Law Enforcement (financieel strafrecht) at Tilburg Law School. Nelemans specialises in financial (criminal) law and its enforcement by regulatory authorities and the public prosecutor.

Governments and authorities at home and abroad are paying more attention to financial and economic offenses and the abuse of the financial system by criminals. Against this background, his research focuses on the regulation of misconduct in financial and economic dealings, the enforcement of financial law (both criminal and regulatory enforcement) and the financial side of subversive crime such as money laundering, confiscation, bribery and accounting fraud.  He also has a specific interest in the impact of emerging technologies on financial crime and its enforcement, such as cryptocrimes and artificial intelligence.
