The nature and scope of the influence exercised by criminals over local public administration

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

In recent years there has thus been ample attention focused on the bribing of local adminis-trators and on how criminals attempt to influence local decision-making (processes) by us-ing threats or infiltration. This was, however, mainly based on individual cases and on im-pressions. The nature and scope of the influence exercised by criminals over local public administration has not yet been thoroughly researched.

The central research question in this research is:

What is the nature and scope of the influence exercised over local public admin-istrations for criminal purposes, where are the vulnerabilities, to what extent does the influence have an impact on decision-making (processes) and national security and what measures can be developed or tightened to combat this influence?
