Criminal Money Management as a cutting Edge between Profit Oriented Crime and Terrorism. Possible developments until the year 2012 and strategic recommendations.
Schulte, Thomas; Boberg, Martin

The strategic orientation of the LKA NRW is adjusted to the future. In this concept it is essential, in particular with respect to the fight against organised criminal groups and terror organisations to act jointly and across national borders – with newest methods like the so-called scenario-technique, to come to a better “pre-thinking” of the criminal future.

Once more the LKA NRW sets an initiative in this direction. Beginning in December 2005, the LKA NRW, in cooperation with EUROPOL, the University of Ghent and Turkish National Police (TNP) conducted the inter-disciplinary analysis project EDGE with financial support of the EU `AGIS` funding.

In the project, on the one hand the scenario method was examined regard-ing its usability as an instrument for future oriented strategic planning on the field of law enforcement. On the other hand, the field of `Criminal Money Management` as a cutting EDGE between profit oriented crime and terror-ism was chosen as a relevant topic to conduct this examination.

As a result, future scenarios and future robust strategic recommendations were developed. The – unique – collection and analysis of actual interna-tional money flows with an illegal background in Europe and Turkey and the interdisciplinary cooperation of experts from the banking sector, crimino-logical science and law enforcement with a harmonized result have, among others, to be regarded as the relevant outputs of the project.


About CCC

The Cross-Border Crime Colloquium is an annual event since 1999. It brings together experts on international organised (economic) crime to discuss the latest developments in empirical research, legislation and law enforcement, with a special geographical focus on Western, Central, and Eastern Europe. The Colloquia aim at building bridges in three respects: between East and West Europe, between scholars and practitioners, and between old and young.
