Efus coordinates a working group on organised crime since 2019, led by the Cities of Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The group seeks to adapt local prevention policies to the particular characteristics of organised crime, especially its transnational aspect.
In order to promote the exchange of experiences between peers, Efus is launching a series of web conferences on the multiple phenomena related to organised crime, their impact on local and regional dynamics as well as the mechanisms that cities and regions can put in place to prevent and combat this phenomenon.
Five sessions – in English – will be organised from February to June 2022.
