Money, Corruption, and Politics: Getting at the Roots of Transnational Crime
In this public event, a panel of experts will discuss Professor Evan Ellis’ most recent book, “Transnational Crime in Latin America and the Caribbean." Ellis, a Professor of Latin American Studies at the U.S. Army War College, argues that "instead of attacking symptoms, policymakers must focus on the relationships between the interdependent phenomena in the whole system, and how to selectively intervene in affect those relationships."
In addition to Professor Ellis, this public event will feature Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Western Hemisphere Affairs Rebecca Bill Chavez, and Douglas Farah. The panelists will discuss Ellis' book as well as provide analysis of the larger theme of transnational organized crime in the region.
This event is made possible by general funding to CSIS.
