About us

We investigate criminal behavior employing detailed data and frontier quantitative methods. We are particularly interested in the activity of criminal organizations pursuing complex illicit businesses such as drug trafficking, corruption, and money laundering. 

The CLEAN Unit for the Economic Analysis of Crime is part of the BAFFI-CAREFIN research center.


We collaborate with several national and international institutions on anti-crime policies.


We disseminate our findings through workshops, media releases, and joint initiatives with policy-makers
