Narco Terrorism – Infiltration of terrorist groups in the international drug trade
I am looking for a paper on global narco-terrorism and its theories. A look into various narco-terror groups in different regions to provide a global risk assessment and the linkages of these groups to the international drug trade.
It would be welcomed if the paper touch on the notion that linkages and cooperation of terrorist and organized criminal groups facilitated effective operation that is continually inflicting havoc and confusion in an unrestricted evolutionary global framework, since these groups have made logistical inroads through exploitation of growing global inequalities, deepened poverty, deteriorating standards of living, and the debt challenges facing the developing world.
A good resource (amongst many papers that are available on the topic), would be the book “The Dark Art: My Undercover Life in Global Narco-terrorism” by Follis.
