Think Tank: Complexity in Crime and Terrorism (part II)



Following the event in May 2017, the IAS will host a second think tank to discuss the outcomes of the first session, and to further elaborate on possible intervention strategies.

After a successful two-day think tank in which we have looked at the phenomenon of Crime and Terrorism from the scientific perspective of complex adaptive systems, we will narrow down the scope in this follow-up event. The outcome of the first think tank indicates that focusing on financial streams seems to be promising. Therefore, we will now look into the mechanisms related to the financial activities of criminal networks.

Scientific Lead

Prof. dr. Tom van Engers

This think tank is part of our research programme “Crime and Terrorism”.
