Abstract

This paper presents the main results of the project ‘I beni sequestrati alle organizzazioni criminali nelle regioni dell’Obiettivo Convergenza: dalle strategie d’investimento della criminalità all’impiego di fondi comunitari nel riutilizzo di beni già destinati’, carried out, in 2013, by Transcrime/Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Milan, Italy) and funded by the Italian Ministry of Interior — Piano Operativo Nazionale ‘Sicurezza per lo sviluppo’ (national operative programme ‘Security for development’).The project has produced two reports. The first report (Transcrime 2013a) consists of an accurate and in-depth analysis concerning the investments of Italian Mafia-type organised crime groups (Mafia OCGs) in the legal economy. The second report (Transcrime 2013b) focuses on projects of reuse of confiscated assets financed by the PON Sicurezza (NOP Security) programme, co-funded by the EU and the Italian Ministry of Interior, in the years 2000–06 and 2007–13.
