Barone and Narciso:

“This paper addresses a relevant policy question: How can a government prevent that public funding is diverted by organised crime? The results indicate that the design of geographically targeted aid policies, such as European Structural Funds, should be supported by detailed analysis of local crime activities. As far as the presence of crime is stronger in poorer, targeted regions, as is likely to be the case, funding policies should take into account the risk that at least part of the money feeds into organised crime. The results of this study suggest that policies based on monetary incentives should be at least accompanied by actions aimed at combating organised crime.”
