Understanding Organised Crime - PICT707

Organised crime is increasingly becoming a major threat to Australia’s national security. However, the parameters of organised crime remain largely subjective and its dynamic not well understood. Still, the insidious, clandestine, pervasive, destructive and resilient nature of organised crime, its variable manifestations, its global presence, transnational operations and its undeniable but often immeasurable impacts, render it among the highest of priorities for establishing and maintaining the safety, security and well-being of individuals, populations and states. In this unit we will adopt a thematic study of the markets, networks, drivers, environment, impacts and emerging trends of organised crime through the use of a combination of open source research and discussion by current industry professionals.
