In this session, Dr. Sergi discusses the characteristics that make the ‘Ndrangheta a poly-crime organisation. She expands on the particular status of ‘Ndrangheta in Europe, which is reflected in the crimes it is involved in, its organisation in different countries, as well as the collaboration with other criminal actors on the continent. She finally mentions the anti-mafia efforts at the EU level, and action levers for improvement. 

Dr. Anna Sergi is a professor of criminology and organised crime studies at the University of Essex. She has written several books and academic articles on Calabrian organised crime in Italy and its ties in several countries around the world.
