Organized crime, integrity and the mayor as sheriff

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


Administrative instruments prove effective in combatting organized crime that undermines society. Recently, public prosecutors have even sought the help of the civil law in dealing with OMGs. In addition, particular municipalities have a range of intervention options at their disposal to take preventive actions in the social and healthcare area and the tax office can use specific tax instruments in tackling crime and confiscating criminal proceeds. After a brief discussion of the phenomenon of undermining crime and its scope, the focus will change to the actions against organized crime, integrity aspects and the role of the mayor. We plead for an integrated approach in which the municipality and its mayor take the lead.
