The Global Reach of the ‘Ndrangheta: Join a Virtual Discussion About Italy’s Most Powerful Mafia

Опубликовано: 12 Июнь 2024

’Ndrangheta webinar

OCCRP is hosting a live webinar about the domestic and international operations of a pervasive Italian organized crime group on Thursday, June 27, 2024 at 5pm CET. You can join by making a donation to OCCRP.

The ’Ndrangheta is considered to be not only Italy’s most powerful mafia, but also one of the largest and most sophisticated criminal organizations in the world.

Made up of a sprawling network of ‘ndrina, or clans, rooted in Calabria at the toe of boot-shaped Italy, the syndicate is believed to rake in as much as US$60 billion annually — roughly equivalent to the GDP of Croatia.

Find out how the ’Ndrangheta works in our next OCCRP Discussion from people who’ve investigated its global reach for years.

Thursday, June 27, 2024
11:00 United States Eastern Time // 17:00 Central European Time

Cecilia Anesi is the director of Investigative Reporting Project Italy, an OCCRP member center that has published dozens of stories about the ’Ndrangheta and its influence abroad. She will be joined by Anna Sergi, a professor of Criminology at the University of Essex, whose research focuses on Italian mafias and policing strategies against them.

The discussion will be moderated by Brian Fitzpatrick, an OCCRP editor who oversaw multiple investigations into ’Ndrangheta cells in North America as well as Europe.

In order to attend this OCCRP Discussion, we ask that you join our Accomplice program. Access to webinars like these is just one of the membership benefits that we offer.

In this 45-minute webinar, you can expect our panelists to discuss:

  • The origins and internal structure of the ’Ndrangheta

  • The group’s dominant position in Europe’s cocaine trade

  • The challenges in prosecuting alleged members

  • The dangers in investigating and researching a violent criminal organization

After you make a donation, we will email you a receipt with a registration link to the event. There will be time for questions from the audience at the end.
