Coalitions between drug cartels and terrorists endanger not only failed or weak states but pose extensive security threats for the entire world. What is designated as ‘narcoterrorism’, is increasingly connected to the narcotics-producing regions of the Golden Crescent and the Golden Triangle. This panel session will be dedicated to exploring the overlap between organized crime groups and terrorist groups focusing on current dynamics in the South Asian region. The panelists will discuss drug trends like an expanding market for amphetamine-type stimulants and the interaction of terrorist groups in the region with the local as well as the global drug supply.

A talk by Celine Burke, Lisa Dudek, Anne-Therese Heckendorff and Aaron Magunna
