European Review of Organised Crime
The latest issue has arrived in my snailmail box. A couple of pieces catch the eye. Peter Gottschalk “Stages of Financial Crime by Business Organisations”, which includes our old friend Klaus von Lampe in the bibliography [which is itself excellent] and must therefore be extremely kosher! Peter discusses the stages of growth in organised financial crime and is primarily conceptual in nature.
Luiz de Andrade Filho “The Dynamics of Drug-related Organised Crime and Corruption in Brazil from a Developmental Perspective” also looks worth a read. Again it raises questions of how criminal organisations themselves develop.
