Transnational Workshop on Motor Vehicle Theft: Case Studies and EU Barrier Model Development


Over the past two days, V-Bar held a workshop, hosted by Centrum voor Criminaliteitspreventie en Veiligheid, and in collaboration with the Center for the Study of Democracy, Gent University and the Institute for International Research on Criminal Policy, European Network on Administrative Approach, as well as the Dutch and French police. The primary aim of this workshop was to present case studies on motor vehicle theft from six EU countries, namely Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands.



During the workshop, experts discussed the development and implementation of an EU barrier model to counteract motor vehicle theft and online distribution of stolen parts and vehicles by mobile organized crime groups. Following a thorough evaluation of these barrier modes, V-BAR will present them in a compiled handbook.
