JUEST Network Launch: Towards a Comprehensive UK-EU Security Treaty

Monday, October 22, 2018 - 11:00 to 15:30

On Monday 22 October 2018, RUSI’s Strategic Hub for Organised Crime Research (SHOC) hosted an event in collaboration with Aston University and Northumbria University to launch the UK–EU Security and Criminal Justice Cooperation (JUEST) Network. The Network encourages multidisciplinary research and engagement to influence, irrespective of the course Brexit takes, the future development of strong and sustainable EU–UK security and criminal justice cooperation.

BY INVITATION ONLY: Mafiaround: The Fight Against Italian Mafias beyond Italy

Thursday, November 29, 2018 (All day) to Friday, November 30, 2018 (All day)

This two-day workshop will bring together practitioners from different law enforcement agencies around the world involved in the investigation and countering of Italian mafia groups in their territories and across their borders. Sharing practices and insights will be the primary goal, but rather than just listening to each other’s experiences and knowledge, the workshop will be organised around a number of thematic sessions including, but not limited to:

BY INVITATION ONLY: The Wildlife Trafficking-Security Nexus: Targeting the Organised Crime Threat

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 13:30

Wildlife trafficking is having a devastating effect on many species across the globe. It has increasingly been recognised as a form of transnational organised crime, with major implications for security.

BY INVITATION ONLY: Organised Crime/Terror Nexus Workshop

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 - 11:00

The organised crime/terror nexus manifests at various levels. Organised crime groups and terrorists may converge, permanently or opportunistically. For instance, terrorist groups such as the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) are known to tax and extort drugs traffickers operating within the territory they control; and the Neapolitan Camorra were found to be supplying heavy weapons to ETA in return for shipments of drugs.

BY INVITATION ONLY: Cyber Crime – The Challenges for UK Business

Friday, April 20, 2018 - 09:00 to 12:30

Cyber criminals are broadening their efforts and expanding their strategic modus operandi to achieve higher value pay-outs from UK citizens, organisations and institutions. Even when key individuals responsible for the most damaging cyber criminal activities against the UK are identified, it is often difficult for the UK and international law enforcement agencies to prosecute them when they are located in jurisdictions with limited, or no, extradition arrangements.

BY INVITATION ONLY: Brexit and the future of UK-EU police cooperation

Wednesday, March 14, 2018 - 10:00 to 15:30

BREXIT poses several challenges to UK-EU police cooperation. Both parts agree on the need to keep working together against serious and organised crime. However the modalities of this cooperation are still unclear. There is no precedent of non-EU or non-Schengen members to access the European police and criminal justice tools.

The UK will no longer be accountable to the EU’s judicial institutions. Neither will it be part of the adjudicatory oversight and judicial decisionmaking process. Brexit may also complicate intelligence-sharing.

BY INVITATION ONLY: Data Analytics – Fighting Tomorrow’s Organised Crime

Monday, November 20, 2017 - 12:00 to 15:30

Advanced data science technology presents new opportunities to more effectively analyse, understand and respond to the threats posed by organised crime. Recent research has highlighted the potential applications of such tools, but has also revealed a number of key barriers currently preventing law enforcement agencies from taking full advantage of these opportunities. Discussions have also increasingly focused on the ethical and legal challenges presented by the use of such technologies.

BY INVITATION ONLY Serious and Organised Crime: The Threat to the UK and Our Strategic Response

Thursday, July 20, 2017 - 02:30 to 16:30

Serious and Organised Crime is and always will be a fast-evolving threat. Serious and organised criminals continually seek to use new tactics, techniques and technology to identify means to exploit vulnerabilities and generate illicit profit. Our collective understanding of the nature of the threat to the UK has improved since the publication of the Serious and Organised Crime Strategy in 2013, although in some cases this has pointed to an underestimated level of resilience of organised crime networks, and to the breadth and sophistication of their activities.

Roundtable on Modern Slavery

Thursday, September 8, 2016 (All day)

This workshop will welcome panels of distinguished speakers to present and discuss some key considerations in addressing modern slavery in the UK, particularly focused on identifying victims, their susceptibility and vulnerability; and whether labour exploitation markets are organised or not.
