This chapter focuses on the Camorra's presence in France. Camorra clans have been present in France since the early 1980s, but it would be misleading to define this presence as a form of “exportation” or “transplantation.” Rather, clans have operating cells when and where they can; these are flexible, irregular, and haphazard because “the Camorra is interested in everything: it seeks to make money from activities that do not appear at first as criminal, they are into everything.” Indeed, the cases examined in this chapter demonstrate how camorristi adapt to their new settings; they show the ease with which disorganized camorristi can access France, its social communities and its economic fabric.

Keywords:   Camorra clans, France, operating cells, criminal activities, camorristi, social communities, economic fabric
