In the past few years the links between crime and terrorism have been under debate. Are the criminal networks radicalising, or do terrorists just use criminal activities for financing their political activities like before? What synergies might organised crime and terrorist groups find? How is the turmoil in the Middle East impacting our security here in the North? What is the nexus of crime and terrorism?

In order to answer the questions, a specific study has been realised in the Nordic countries by Peter Neumann and Rajan Basra from the the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation.
