Drugs trafficking

A Talk by Dina Siegel , Marco Antonelli , Deborah Manzi , Anthony Morgan and Toine Spapens

About this Talk

This panel session will explore the role of criminal markets, criminal opportunities and state resilience in the transnational illicit drug trafficking. The characteristics of crime entrepreneurs and the subcultures from which they mostly emerge, the criminal business processes, and the role of the government will be discussed in the context of organized drug trafficking. Criminal organizations often exploit existing trade chains while looking for a gateway for drug trafficking. One study will focus on investigating drug trafficking organizations (DTOs) resilience to police intervention. Another theme to be covered in the session is the mechanisms of drug trafficking in European ports.
