A hybrid geographic profiling and network analysis to understand the actions of the criminal organizations
Supervision of PhD research: One of the most important hypothesis of this study is that the incidence of crime is significantly influenced by four major items: Geographic profile of the zones of influence of criminal organizations, Social network of the criminals, Urban and sociodemographic factors of the region (risk factors), Black market economic activity (economic agents) These four factors are importants to understand the crime incidence as a multifactorial phenomenon and not just an isolated activity. These items are interacting in a dynamic way in a determinate space and time; they are influenced bye people who conform a network inside a criminal organization. From the above the study will try to identify what are the specific places where the key actors of the networks has more influence, using the theory of Geographic Prolifing and Social Network Analysis, the objective is generate a hybrid model where we can identify the most relevants actors (or nodes) of the network and the places where they are acting; identify these topics are very useful to propose focalized strategies to dismantle an illegal organization and reduce the violent crimes in these specific places.
