Subversive crime

This call aims to develop knowledge of the foundations, drivers, mechanisms and structures of undermining criminal phenomena, systems, networks and modus operandi. This knowledge feeds, and is also fed by, the development of new action perspectives, intervention possibilities, (technological) tools and methods. Through an integrated approach from the technical, social and humanities disciplines throughout the knowledge chain, subversive crime is reduced and the resilience of citizens, the business community and public administration is increased.
