Organised crime is receiving increased attention, both from government departments and academic researchers. However, the current state of knowledge of this area remains limited. The research community is fragmented, and academic research is disconnected from the needs of policymakers. More effort is needed to bridge the gap between theory, policy and practice.
In partnership with the Home Office, National Crime Agency, Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Research Council UK’s Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security, RUSI has launched a Strategic Hub on Organised Crime to develop a world class research agenda that meets the needs of policymakers.
Join us for the launch of the Strategic Hub on 8 December. This one-day conference will include panels on three priority areas for policymakers – what strategies are effective at disrupting organised crime, what do criminal markets look like, and where are the vulnerabilities in the system.
