TRANSNATIONAL TENTACLES – GLOBAL HOTSPOTS OF BALKAN ORGANISED CRIME

On 24 July, the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organised Crime published a report which shows why and how groups from the Western Balkans have become engaged in organised crime abroad, particularly in South Africa, Turkey, Australia as well as in some countries of Latin America and Western Europe, and are described as are modern, dynamic and entrepreneurial. The report suggests that there is not a ‘Balkan Cartel’ per se, although groups from the region sometimes work with each other, and there are also instances of multi-ethnic groups.
