This page collects the public deliverables produced by the PROTON Consortium. The documents provide detailed information on the activities performed and on the results achieved by the project.
D1.1 – Report on factors relating to OC
This report presents a systematic review of the social, psychological, and economic factors relating to criminalisation and recruitment to organised crime groups (OCGs). It encompasses different types of OCGs, namely mafias, drug trafficking organisations (DTOs), gangs, and a residual category including other criminal organisations.
D2.1 – Report on factors related to terrorism
This deliverable presents the findings and final reports of all tasks contained within WP2. It includes the first quantitative systematic reviews of the social, psychological and economic factors relating to terrorism and provides the results of the innovative studies of the individual risk factors associated to recruitment and radicalisation.
D3.1 – Report on OC and terrorism in Cyberspace
This deliverable presents the findings and reports for all task whithin WP3. Each of the six tasks conducted within this work package is presented within a separate section. The systematic review of cyber-related OC and terrorist activities, and technological means for their study forms the theoretical foundation of WP3’s overall goals. The qualitative-quantitative study gives an insight in the social media activities of lone-wolf terrorists and shows possible indicators of the move from radicalization of belief to radicalization of action.
D4.1 – Input (rules/specifications) for PROTON simulations and Wizard
This deliverable presents the findings and reports for all task within WP4. It consists of three sections. Section 1 includes the report on the internal workshop The meeting was aimed to discuss the results of WP1-3 and the organisation of work leading to the PROTON-S simulator and PROTON Wizard. Section 2 presents the report on the operationalisation of factors into input for ABM simulations. Section 3 comprises the reports for selected experiments.
D6.1 – Ethical and Societal Issues and Safeguards
This deliverable presents the main activities and preliminary findings of T6.1, on Ethical and Societal Issues and Safeguards. It performs a preliminary ethical and social impact assessment of both the output of WP 1, 2 and 3, and the risk factors for the recruitment in Organized Crime and Terrorism Networks (OCTNs), by pointing out the main risk factors that could be encountered in PROTON project deliverables. Deliverable D6.6 will update D6.1 and will explain how PROTON researchers have mitigated the risks identified.
D6.3 – ELAG’s mission statement and agenda
D6.4 – Interim Societal Impact Report
The scope of this interim report is not to assess the full range of the societal impacts of PROTON, PROTON-S, and PROTON-Wizard – as they are still in the making –, but to explore their potential consequences from a theoretical and anticipatory perspective, thus allowing the partners involved in the development of PROTON to better identify, assess and manage some of the positive and negative societal consequences associated with the project.
D6.6 – Ethical and societal issues and safeguards
This report analyses the ethical and societal impacts of the risk factors identified by WP1 and WP2 and suggests mitigation strategies that should help the design of the Agent Based Models (ABMs) for Organized Crime and Terrorist Networks (OCTNs). It also analyses ethical and societal impact of Internet research activities carried out by WP3 and provides safeguards with regards to the use of ABM as a simulation tool.
