About this talk

This session, moderated by Fatjona Mejdini, will be dedicated to understanding the threats posed by illicit flows to maritime and port security. More specifically, panelists will discuss how and why illicit trade manifests in port premises and along rivers. Starting from the international perspective, prof. Sergi will illustrate international cocaine flows, and present some of the findings of her research on ports in the Global North. The session will then continue with a presentation on the main findings of the recently published report "Port Holes, exploring the Maritime Balkan Routes" by authors Ruggero Scaturro and Walter Kemp. Kristina Amerhauser will instead present the risks posed my illicit traffics along the Danube River.
