Working grant - EUROCRIMES - Exploring Criminal Worlds on the Continent
Which are the countries that have become main sources of criminal activities? What routes do they follow? What is specific to one country or another when it comes to crimes? How much is reality and how much is myth? What are the main causes of these crimes?
A team of international journalists across six nations took a closer look at this phenomenon, gathering statistics on prisoner numbers from national institutions in 25 European countries and creating infographics that would help the public better understand the scale of criminality and its relationship to migration. They also studied a variety of offenses, from human trafficking to drug dealing and from shoplifting to car thefts, by talking with former convicts, victims, experts, and authorities and travelling to hot spots on the crime map of Europe.
