The organized crime (OC) situation within the EU is developing rapidly. It is a growing problem within the EU and poses a threat to the EU objective to create a high level of safety within an area of freedom, security and justice.
On the one hand, the opening of the borders between EU – 27 member states have made the indigenous and non-indigenous OC groups within the EU aware of the possibilities of expanding their criminal activities. Furthermore, to achieve criminal successes, the OC groups exploit the absence of or delay in the political initiatives or the unforeseen, negatives consequences of these as well as judicial changes among different EU member states.
On the other hand, the growth of the European Union however does not just provide the organized crime with new opportunities in a common geographical and political space; it also provides the EU with an opportunity to streamline its political initiatives and activities, to become more efficient by overcoming national differences in the area of law enforcement. The EU has taken advantage of this new opportunity and from the recent years up to now has adopted a global strategy in the struggle against the organized crime both within the EU and in the international level. This strategy for the purpose of my research is divided into important parts: The investigation of organized crime and the combating of organized crime, within EU and beyond.
The primary aim of this work is just to analyze and to bring insights for the EU a logic line and method to investigate and combat the organized crime from EU. We should keep in mind that the EU is not “a state” and the difficulties to achieve this goal are enormous. And, a good example to frame laws and to introduce efficient investigative methods, in different member states and in its own EU legislation, is Italy.
As regards the methodology it is a mixing between analyze and descriptive one. The work will focus more on e European perspective of the fight against the organized crime than on individual national actions against it. The two important moments of this strategy against organized crime are reflected as I mentioned above on the investigation of organized crime, and combating of organized crime.
