About us

INW is a group of scholars and analysts from across the world that shares a research interest in the use of network analysis in furthering the understanding of the activities of individuals, groups and organisations engaged in organised crime, gangs, transnational crime, terrorism, and corruption issues.  While some members draw heavily on social network analysis, others rely on other methods (e.g., ethnography) for studying illicit networks.
