Objectives and results
This study aimed at developing and testing a cross-national and cross-sectorial methodology for assessing the nature, social relevance and dynamics of patterns of criminal cooperation, taking the trafficking in untaxed cigarettes in the European Union as an object of study for a first pilot. In a sector-by-sector analysis of the situation in the areas of drug trafficking, illegal immigration, trafficking in human beings, and trafficking in contraband cigarettes the project explored current possibilities and limits of a meaningful assessment of organised crime.
