“Building Connections Between Students and Alumni”
Mark Ungar, Professor of Political Science and Criminal Justice
Lecture will be given Tuesday, April 16, 1:00 – 2:00 pm, 3403 James Hall
Why does the world seem to be losing its fight against organized crime? This presentation examines the entrenched war against syndicated crime networks in Latin America, a region with five of the world’s 10 deadliest countries and 40% of its murders. It explains that much of the difficulty in curbing organized crime is rooted in the region’s ever-expanding policing network, the state’s overlap with criminal organizations, and the erosion of key constitutional principles. These conditions exist in several arenas, which the presentation will discuss: political, geographic, institutional, legal, and economic. Based on work with international organizations and governments over the past three years, it will focus on two major zones of organized crime: the drug trafficking corridor from Central America through Mexico, and the Amazon Basin of South America.
