(p.181) Conclusion
Corporate and white-collar crime in Ireland

Joe McGrath

Manchester University Press

This draws together the various threads from the previous chapters and demonstrates that a new architecture of corporate enforcement exists. This new architecture consists of new ways of thinking about corporate and white-collar crime, new legal structures and their enforcement in practice. It is shown that the state has transitioned from one contradictory model of corporate enforcement to another. Traditionally, it invoked the its most powerful weapon of state censure, the criminal law, but was remarkably lenient in practice. The contemporary model is more reliant on cooperative measure and civil orders, but also contains remarkably punitive and instrumental measures.
