Organised crime poses a threat to the security of our societies and the integrity of public administration. While preventive measures may be effective in thwarting certain types of crime, little is known about the types of instruments that can effectively help preventing organised crime. This study responds to a call from the Research and Documentation Centre (Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek- en Documentatiecentrum, WODC) to gather insights into the effectiveness of preventative instruments in the field of organised crime.
This study focused specifically on three activities associated with organised crime: drug production and trafficking, arms trafficking and smuggling, and human trafficking and smuggling. Through a review of the literature and interviews with experts, researchers examined the available evidence on organised crime prevention and what we can learn from such evidence.
