Fight against organised crime

Justice, freedom and security

Organised crime is a threat to the economy and society in Europe. The European Union’s response in the fight against organised crime is adapted to the complexity of this phenomenon and is directed at both trafficking in human beings, arms and drugs and economic and financial crime, corruption and money laundering. It also covers the new dimensions of organised crime, such as cybercrime and environmental crime.
The integrated approach guiding the action of the EU extends from prevention to law enforcement. This is based essentially on effective cooperation between the authorities of the Member States, and especially the law enforcement agencies, including the exchange of information and mutual assistance in seizures and confiscations. The fight against organised crime is global, affecting many areas of the EU’s action and policies.
