Organized Crime and the Financial Crisis: Recent Trends in the Baltic Sea Region
Erik Leijonmarck, Walter Kegö and Alexandru Molcean
The financial crisis has affected not only the economies of countries in the Baltic Sea Region. It also provided a golden opportunity for organized crime groups to expand their activities. This book presents analyses by leading criminologists on how these groups have been able to take advantage of the crisis. Using a wide range of information and statistical data, the six case studies reveal the extent to which organized crime groups have infiltrated societies and pose a severe threat not only to individuals but also the state.
