Organised crime threat assessments - from an academic’s scientific but not wholly theoretical perspective

  • Michael Levi

Abstract

This conference speech about OCTA and ‘threat assessment’, focuses on several important issues at European level. The author discusses several questions, like: ‘threats to whom and what and from where?’; ‘how do we really prioritise threats?’; ‘what activities are covered by an ‘assessment’?’ and analyses them case by case, focusing on key problems, not only from a theoretical point of view but also from an academic’s perspective.
The author states that there is a need for more clarification for the term ‘assessment’. Its approach leads to raising questions to be discussed both now and in the future through different methodologies and perspectives.
