Where the money is: the geographies of organised crime

Tim Hall

This article explores forms of organised crime that account for a significant proportion of global economic activity and yet have been largely overlooked by geographers. It notes the absence of studies of organised crime within geographical literature and considers the case of 'mobbed up' regions, i.e. those with extensive and longstanding problems of organised crime. It discusses a range of possible theoretical approaches to understanding the 'mobbing up' of regions and highlights the potential of network approaches.
