Interwovenness of organised crime and terrorist jihadi groups regarding the procurement of firearms

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The question if and how organised crime and terrorist jihadi groups are interwoven regarding the procurement of (automatic) firearms is of great interest for investigative and intelligence services.
This research sheds light on the issue through three elements:
- a literature review,
- an exploration of the added value of social network analysis (SNA),
- an illustration of this added value based on a concrete Dutch case.
