Product Description

In this fifth volume of the European Colloquium Group on Cross-border Crime, experts from the ‘Old’ and ‘New’ Europe bring together their expertise regarding the criminal markets, (organised) crime-entrepeneurs and the vulnerability of trade and industry.They address phenomena concerning the organisation of crime markets, ranging from the traditional drug trafficking, women trading, the organised ‘black’ labour market and licit commodities of consumer products like alcohol and cigarettes. Also the ‘upperworld’, criminal finances, money laundering and related policy, is scrutinised from the perspective: are the problems properly recognised, measured and countered?
