Ethnic Mob on the Rise
By 2003 ethnic Albanian organized crime reached its height on the agendas of many Western countries. International and governmental agencies have depicted Albanian organized crime as an emerging and serious threat to “civil society” and “national security.” Despite its publicity, however, Albanian organized crime remains an understudied topic. This chapter introduces the numerous myths that arose in the late 1990s about a ruthless, hierarchically structured and ethnically homogenous Albanian Mafia that was quickly taking control over foreign territories. It also elaborates on the research methods used to collect data on organized crime, ranging from interviews with organized crime offenders, victims and law enforcement officials to analysis of court and police files.
