Organised Crime in European Businesses (Hardcover)
About this item
Although the criminological literature has much to say about the respective fields of money laundering and organized crime, less is written on the link between the two. Bringing together leading experts and a number of illuminating case studies, this book considers the infiltration of organised crime in legitimate business around Europe.Building on new empirical evidence in Finland, France, Republic of Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom, this book considers the purposes and methods of infiltration, the targeted business sectors and the variation of infiltration across different European countries and different criminal organisations. It also examines the impact on the European economy and the implications for policy and research.
