In 2015, an Italian mafia boss condemned for “mafia association” in Italy was allowed to remain in the UK. What does this mean? In this debate piece, we try to analyse what we know about the presence in the UK of transnational organised crime groups and Italian mafias in particular. Are the British authorities aware of the presence and activities of Italian mafias? What do they really know about Italian mafias in Europe? As for researchers, how can we study this phenomenon?
