About this talk

This book is dedicated to a multi-faceted and interdisciplinary analysis of the subject of the penetration and exploitation of the private sector economy by organized crime. Additionally, it explores the private sector’s responses, frequently in cooperation with public sector institutions, to the threats posed by predatory criminal organizations. This is an understudied topic, which if better understood, can help to build synergies between different stakeholders with a mandate and vested interest to curtail the negative impact of organized crime on economy, security, and society at large.
