Threat Assessment -Italian Organised CrimeEuropol, 2013: The restricted version of this document, made available to the EU law enforcement community, aims at explaining the nature and structure of the four Italian Mafias: Sicilian Mafia, Calabrian ‘Ndrangheta, Neapolitan Camorra and Apulian Organised Crime. It analyses their international dimension, the different attitudes they assume when operating outside their territory, the well-practised and new modi operandi used in their criminal operations, and their trans-national strategies. It also attempts to anticipate their next moves, and indeed to identify possible vulnerabilities and the course of actions necessary to successfully combat Mafia activity.
