In the past decade, administrative approaches to the identification, prevention and disruption of organised crime have taken place beside more traditional criminal justice responses in several jurisdictions. The basis of these approaches is the idea that economic sectors and organisations have identifiable vulnerabilities that render them targets for criminal activity and incursions by criminal organisations. Administrative approaches bring a multidisciplinary focus and an array of policy instruments and administrative tools to the repression of organised crime. Papers in this session will examine the experience of three pilot projects undertaken by Belgian authorities. In addition Canadian experiences with sectoral vulnerability studies will be discussed.
