About this course
Transnational organised crime (TOC) refers to fluid, self-perpetuating associations and networks of individuals and diversified industry engaging in illicit activities, ranging from drug and human trafficking and the smuggling of illegal migrants to piracy and money laundering, in order to obtain power, influence and monetary or commercial gains. However, the ultimate motive for cross-border organised crime, including mafia-type criminal organisation, is financial gain.
The illicit business of organised criminals threatens not only the interdependent commercial, transport, communication and transactional systems that facilitate free trade and the free movement of people throughout the global economy, but also jeopardises governance structures, economic development, security and supply chain integrity.
In light of this, the seminar will analyse the various operating methods used by TOC to speculate on the weaknesses of public administrative practices, licit economies and markets regulations, with special attention paid to the various forms of criminal infiltration utilised. It will examine and consider not only the criminal organisations and the markets within which they operate, but also the money (including cryptocurrency) that is generated, much of which goes into licit businesses and the global financial system.
During the seminar, the speakers will examine how global criminal activities at their highest level of criminal sophistication, often supported by cyber tools, are transforming the international system, upending the rules, creating new players and reconfiguring power in international politics and economics, which in turn poses specific threats to the stability of nation states.
Finally, discussions will be held on the European strategy for combating criminal infiltration in the legal economy and public administration and the harmonisation process among the various Member States for preventing TOC.
The methodology will consist of a combination of presentations, discussions, practical examples and case studies, so that participants can derive as much as possible from the facilitators’ complementary practical experience.
The general objective of this seminar is to enhance a country’s defensive capacity by understanding how the organised crime business works and the use of effective methods to more effectively identify and limit the opportunities exploited by criminals to infiltrate both illicit and legitimate markets in Europe.is present in
