Organised crime

Organised crime has been one of the key areas of research for over a decade for CSD. Over this period numerous studies on criminal markets and activities have been conducted. CSD has partnered with national (Ministry of Interior and the Main Directorate Combating Organised Crime) or international law-enforcement agencies (Serious Organised Crime Agency (UK), Bundeskriminalamt, and Europol), or international organizations (UNODC) in implementing projects or conducting research. Since 2007 CSD through its consulting arm Project One EOOD has carried out research on behalf of the European Commission’s Directorate General Justice Freedom and Security (DG JLS) throughout all 27 EU Member States, partnering with the leading criminologists throughout Europe. Research articles of CSD’s researchers have appeared in international peer-reviewed journals and other peer-reviewed publications. CSD researchers are also active in the public policy dialogue on organized crime through regular appearance on all leading TV and radio networks, or as contributors to daily and weekly newspapers. more>>

 

Crime and policing

Research on volume crime and policing has been a core area of CSD research since it first collaborated with United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in conducting the International Crime Victims Survey in 1997. Since then CSD in cooperation with its social survey agency subsidiary, Vitosha Research, has carried out regular crime victimization surveys of citizens and businesses. Since 2005, CSD established a regular National Crime Survey, which is conducted annually on behalf of the Ministry of Interior. Between 2004 and 2008 CSD, with the support of the Open Society Institute in New York and European Union, conducted a number of studies and on police racial profiling and police stops. Research articles of CSD’s researchers have appeared in international peer-reviewed journals. CSD researchers are also active in the public policy dialogue on crime and policing through regular appearance on all leading TV and radio networks, or as contributors to daily and weekly newspapers. more>>
