The term ‘organised crime’ suggests a greater level of coherence than exists in reality, while the major threat imagery it evokes is useful for some purposes but counterproductive for others. While some organised criminal groups and activities pose a threat to national security, most affect human security at a sub-national level. Michael Levi critically examines some economic, physical and perception features of the harms and threats encompassed by organised crime, and discusses their implications for strategic and tactical interventions.
