Organized Crime, Conflict, and Fragility
A New Approach
This report examines the dynamics between conflict, state fragility and transnational organized crime, demonstrating the linkages between the three problems. The author contends that historical security-based responses to issues of fragility were insufficient due to their lack of political content. Similarly, responses focused exclusively on security and the rule of law will be of limited effectiveness due to their lack of social, political and economic content. Through broadening the conceptual understanding of the relationship between organized crime, conflict and fragility, it should be possible to implement more effective responses.
