Organized crime in Latin America

A Talk by Sarah W. Hirsch , Fausto Carbajal-Glass , Jose Pablo Ampudia , Juan Corredor-Garcia and Damián Zaitch

About this Talk

This panel explores the varieties of civilian resistance in criminal contexts in Latin America. The nexus remains unexplored in national and international scholarship as well as risk assessments and, therefore, in the policy-making process. Then, they discuss the stratified intelligence policy as a cost-effective approach to combating firearms trafficking in Mexico where relatively few intelligence-directed operations are conducted even though trafficking involves moving illicit firearms rather than specific crimes committed by their end recipients. They also talk about the cocaine trafficking through the Paraguay-Paraná ‘Hidroway’ which connects 5 countries in South America. Finally, they explore the varieties of ethnic civilian resistance under criminal territorial control in rural areas in Colombia and Mexico.
