Where are the Italian Mafias in Italy and abroad?

The Australian Institute of Criminology with the University of Sydney present: Where are the Italian mafias? Featuring speaker Associate Professor Francesco Calderoni.

Where are the Italian mafias? Which Italian regions have a higher mafia presence? And which countries in the world are more affected by the presence of Italian organised crime? This presentation will discuss the movement of the Italian mafias from the territories of origin in the South of Italy to other Italian regions and countries of the world. It will present attempts to measure and analyse the presence of the mafias and discuss the implications for research (why criminal groups move? what do they do in the host territories?) as well as ideas for policies preventing and tackling the mafias in new territories (what may countries do to effectively prevent the activities of the mafias in their territory?).
