Overlaps between Organised Crime and Terrorism
This article analyses the distinctive and connecting aspects of organised crime and terrorism, presenting the criminological elements of these two phenomena and legal aspects involved in fighting them. Although each of them has an independent existential theoretical and legal expression, they are not only interconnected, but also complement each other. The article emphasises that to combat these ills effectively, international and national (including criminal and procedural) legislation must reflect both the individual specifics of organised crime and terrorism and the context of their common features – with the connections between these features understood. Both international and national normative regulation can be more effective in the fight against organised crime and terrorism if their content is directed against these phenomena by perceiving them both in isolation and in recognising their integrity.
