Researcher Marc Balcells' R&I work focuses on crimes against cultural heritage and its inclusion in transnational crime (organized crime, terrorism) and international crime (war crimes against cultural heritage).
Specifically, he is an expert in the criminological analysis of archaeological looting and illegal trade involving this type of heritage; his criminological analysis is based on the figure of the looter of tombs and archaeological sites. He has also researched other crimes against cultural property, such as theft and forgery of art works. His other research interests are organized crime, the history of criminology and crime, and cybercrime.
