Once more the LKA NRW sets an initiative in this direction. Beginning in December 2005, the LKA NRW, in cooperation with EUROPOL, the University of Ghent and Turkish National Police (TNP) conducted the inter-disciplinary analysis project EDGE with financial support of the EU `AGIS` funding.
In the project, on the one hand the scenario method was examined regard-ing its usability as an instrument for future oriented strategic planning on the field of law enforcement. On the other hand, the field of `Criminal Money Management` as a cutting EDGE between profit oriented crime and terror-ism was chosen as a relevant topic to conduct this examination.
As a result, future scenarios and future robust strategic recommendations were developed. The – unique – collection and analysis of actual interna-tional money flows with an illegal background in Europe and Turkey and the interdisciplinary cooperation of experts from the banking sector, crimino-logical science and law enforcement with a harmonized result have, among others, to be regarded as the relevant outputs of the project.
The next Colloquium will be held in Newcastle, United Kingdom.
