For our part, we have produced a set of library products aiming to support the work of the Committee and will continue to do so. Now, in order to provide a comprehensive and complete overview of the topic, we present them all here.
If you need a short, but in-depth analysis we suggest you look at our set of briefings dealing with: the confiscation of the criminal assets, the fight against human trafficking (in French), the EU and illicit drugs, Europol and Russian organised crime.
If, however, you prefer to conduct your own analysis, you may be interested in reading our keysources. Here you can find a selection of reliable sources of information regarding: trafficking in women, organised crime in the Western Balkans, weapons smuggling, money laundering, cybercrime or confiscation of criminal-assets.
If you need still more background material, have a look at our navigators. These provide a deeper a wider ranging view of the topic. In the last few months we have covered drug trafficking, the fight against corruption, trafficking in human beings, organised crime, and cyber security. These navigators are, however, only available on the internal website.
Finally, if you work in the CRIM EP Committee, you might want to sign up for the weekly CRIM press overview we launched using the Factiva press database. See the previous overviews and sign up here. MEP offices and staff interested in CRIM related topics can furthermore subscribe to receive automatic e-mail alerts whenever we add interesting new library information to our intranet site.
We have made some of the above-mentioned products available at events held at the European Parliament, such as the June event on Contemporary Slavery.
