Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter


This report reviews our hypotheses on the roles and functions of women in criminal organizations. The conclusion makes up the preface to subsequent further study. considering the lack of data on female roles in the different criminal organizations, the exploratory hypothesis formulated here aims at combining several structural characteristics of female criminality with the evolution of the criminal organizations. Finally, an analytical model is suggested for interpreting existing scenarios and, if the hypothesis is verified, predicting future scenarios on the development of criminal organizations and how much this development may be connected to women in leadership roles.
