About this talk

In this session, David Bright will deliver a presentation on the topic of co-offending networks among OMCG members, exploring the nature and extent of co-offending among these members and the role of high-harm members within these networks. Pedro Sousa and Ana Guerreiro will present the results of a sentencing study on organized crime, which will respond to the question: In what extent judicial decisions on organized crime groups cases consider the centrality power of its members inside the criminal network?. Filipa Silva will present the outcomes of a study focused on an organized crime group acting in Portugal, demonstrating how criminal investigations can profit from the application of Social Network Analysis techniques. Anna Sergi will present her article ‘Mafia Borderland: hybridity, isomorphism and survival of Italian-American mafias in the Niagara region between US and Canada’, which investigates the current status of Italian-American mafias in North America.
