Transnational organised crime: Deepening and broadening our understanding
As part of its contribution to the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security Research (PaCCS), the ESRC would like to commission up to four research grants that will deepen and broaden our understanding of the complex issues related to Transnational Organised Crime (TNOC) and its interrelation with other licit and illicit activities.
The key questions this call poses are:
- Which factors enable and facilitate TNOC, and how is this evolving?
- Which factors disrupt and impede TNOC?
- How do societal and cultural values shape TNOC, and conversely how does TNOC shape social and economic structures and cultures, deliberately or otherwise?
