Fighting outlaw motorcycle gangs (OMGs) is currently one of the top priorities of many governments around the world. In his research, Teun examines how the Dutch Government is controlling the risk of outlaw motorcycle gangs. By taking ‘the pre-crime society’ as his theoretical starting-point, he moreover aims to make clear to what extent this ‘Dutch Approach’ offers an adequate response to the problem of OMGs.
