Abstract:

International organized crime is a growing problem that poses a direct threat to the stability of many regions throughout the world. It challenges the viability of nascent democratic states and undermines their economic prosperity. As such, international crime organizations endanger important U.S. national interests and must be given serious consideration by those who make or implement our national security policy. Any national security strategy that ignores the pervasive effects of this threat, or fails to recognize its transnational nature is, fundamentally flawed and doomed to failure.
