The global threat of organized crime
- Francesco ROMOLO
Transnational criminal markets are present around the world, dealing with drugs, arms, trafficked people, toxic waste, stolen natural resources or protected animals' parts. Many of the benefits of globalization such as easier and faster communication, movement of finances and international travel, have also created opportunities for transnational organized criminal groups to flourish, diversify and expand their activities. Data on the illicit trafficking will be illustrated, considering the opportunity to support intelligence activities and criminal investigations thanks to scientific information.
