Italian organized crime in the UK: continuing the debate

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This opinion piece is a reply to Katerina Gachevska’s article which questions some of the ideas andconcepts which I developed in a previous opinion piece entitled ‘Italian organised crime in the UK’ (Policing, vol 6, number 4, pp. 354–359). This opinion piece seeks to clarify and explain why ‘invisible’ criminal phenomena do not necessarily mean that they are not there. Perhaps, this strategy of ‘invisibility’ is a rational choice made by criminal groups in order to maximise their money-making opportunities without being detected?
