mafianeindanke, Eine Welt



Who we are

Mafianeindanke (MND) is a non-profit association engaged in the prevention of mafia phenomena, organised crime and corruption based in Germany. Formally registered in 2009, it was initiated by a group of Italian restaurant-owners in Berlin, who opposed and denounced a request of protection money in 2007, just a couple of months after a multiple mafia-murder had taken place in Duisburg. Since then, the main goal of the association is to raise awareness about the presence of mafias and organised crime within Germany, and inform about the risks that those phenomena represent for democracy, social justice, equality and freedom.

What we do

MND pursues these objectives by promoting many initiatives to increase the information available on these issues, by organising a variety of events to inform the general public as well as youth and institutions; by participating in European research projects and reinforcing cooperation networks among stakeholders.

The activities of the organisation are coordinated by a small and energetic group of engaged citizens, who believe that this topic has to be more researched and acknowledged. The association is based in Berlin, but there are active groups also in Munich and Cologne, as well as many active individuals all over Germany contributing to the many activities, ranging from information, social-media communication, to research and political advocacy, non-formal education and consulting.
