Understanding Organised Crime and Terrorist Networks TAKEDOWN

Research Fellow: Dr Roberto Musotto

This 15 partner international; interdisciplinary and cross-sector EU (Horizon 2020) project is designed to create new insights into organised crime and terrorist networks by developing an interdisciplinary multidimensional modelling approach that includes social, psychological, economic and cultural perspectives.

The project aim is to develop a deeper understanding of the dynamics of organised crime and terrorist networks in order to bring together different stakeholder groups and assist in developing new counter-strategies.

The Leeds team is overseeing the modelling process as well as leading the social science analysis and focusing upon the use of new technologies in the origination, development and sustaining of the networks.
