About this Talk

In this session, Hernan Mondani and Amir Rostami from Stockholm University will present their paper on criminal nomads, which investigates the criminal collaboration patterns of two OMCGs in Sweden with a long history of deadly hostilities. After this intervention, Lin van Schalkwyk from Ghent University and Judy-Ann Cilliers from MathMoms will deliver a presentation on the topic ‘Can belonging be nurtured as a preventative measure against gangsterism?’, which will illustrate how the search for belonging, identity, and purpose leads young people to gangs and organised crime.
