Taking down terrorist networks

The risks posed to Europe by organised crime and terrorist networks go beyond security. Additional impacts range from tax revenue to social harmony. While many different organisations are involved in awareness-raising, prevention, threat identification and intervention, strategies would be more effective if grounded in greater understanding of the phenomena. EU-funded researchers are now on the case.

Taking down terrorist networks

TAKEDOWN will increase understanding of organised crime and terrorist networks before developing practical toolkits and an open information hub for use by both practitioners and the general public.

For understanding, the project team will carry out a survey among practitioners, as well as individual interviews and focus groups. The project will also involve a literature review to identify previous study findings. Together, the data collected will provide greater insights that have previously been possible into the social, psychological and economic aspects of organised crime and terrorist networks.

The TAKEDOWN toolkit will target practitioners – especially law enforcement – and policy-makers, offering action plans, policy recommendations, response strategies, technological concepts and best practices.

The online information hub will contain information for both specialists and the general public and will serve several purposes: awareness raising, prevention, identification of organised crime and terrorist networks, and intervention. A secure section of the hub will offer digital security solutions, access to advisors and strategic planning for security professionals.
