About this talk

In this session, Janaina Maldonado will present the latest findings on ongoing research on the transnational market of illicit vehicles to and from Brazil. Ana Carolina Bragança will discuss how environmental organized crime in the Amazon Region contaminates apparently legal supply chains, from gold to timber and beef. Carolina Grillo will present ground-breaking research on territorial disputes between criminal groups in Rio de Janeiro, whose findings triggered relevant institutional measures, including a Supreme Court-mandated ban on violent police operations in the city. Finally, GI-TOC research network member Gabriel Feltran will debate the links between the illicit markets presented by the panelists and other forms of organized crimes in Brazil.
