Our research explores the scale and nature of organised crime and the harm that it causes to governments, business and the wider public.

Organised crime is a threat to national security and public safety. It is a multi-billion pound business that undermines political authority and devastates communities. The programme aims to ensure that policymakers, practitioners and members of the public are informed of the threat, government interventions are effective and value for money is achieved.

Reflecting the transnational nature of the threat, the National Security and Resilience group’s current organised crime research spans the UK, West Africa, Latin America and across Europe. This includes the Cocaine Route Monitoring and Support (CORMS) and the Critical Maritime Routes (CRIMSON) programmes, conducted on behalf of the European Commission.
