translate the insights of criminological research and theory into more practically adequate knowledge (see chapters by Dorn and Ekblom in Part IV).
In the ESRC seminar discussions provoked by these papers it was noted that, if law enforcement strategies premised on knowledge of the categorical properties and individual norms of criminal organisations have certain limitations, then control strategies premised on social network analysis and theories of opportunity reduction can also be subjected to criticism for failing to adequately consider the social, political and economic conditions that facilitate and engender organised criminality (Hobbs, 1998, 2001). These conditions are considered in Part III of this book through case studies of the policy response to transnational organised crime in Europe.
