(p.212) Conclusion
The Invisible Camorra

Felia Allum

Cornell University Press

This concluding chapter argues that the Camorra does not migrate, but travel continuously from one operational base to another. Whereas the mobility of other criminal groups might be determined by immigrant communities, strategic decisions, socioeconomic conditions, and political infrastructures, the key to understanding the Camorra's mobility lies in its territory of origin. Indeed, compared to other mafias, the Camorra may still be predominantly Italy focused. However, it is increasingly damaging international economies with its developing European vision. In particular, the cases recounted in this book identified the Camorra's main features abroad, which are functionality, liquidity, invisibility, and a special trait—the interconnectedness of its territories.

Keywords:   Camorra, Camorra mobility, criminal groups, Italy, international economies, European vision, functionality
