Aim of this book - which collects the main findings of Project OCP – Organised Crime Portfolio – is to carry out an exploratory study of the economics of organised crime in Europe, and in particular to address three research questions, which are covered by the three book sections: • Where organised crime proceeds are generated, from which illicit markets (Part 1); • Where these proceeds are then invested in the legitimate economy, in which regions, assets and business sectors (Part 2); • The extent to which these proceeds are confiscated by European authorities (Part 3). The project focuses on seven EU member states (Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom), represented by OCP partners, and for which provides an in-depth analysis. However, the report also presents a broader examination of the situation in Europe as a whole.
