Displacement and Convergence of Illicit Flows (humans and goods)
The project advances the knowledge on the displacement and convergence of transnational crimes with a specific focus on human smuggling and drug trafficking in North Africa and in the areas of the Mediterranean Sea. The American University in Cairo, Florida International University, The Siracusa International Institute, Crime&tech, together with individual scholars from other institutions, are partners to the project.
In April 2022, Springer published the book “The Evolution of Illicit Flows. Displacement and Convergence among Transnational Crime“, edited by Ernesto Savona, Rob T. Guerette and Alberto Aziani.
The book focuses on the analysis and main results of this project, delving into the relevant theories and empirical evidence supporting the policy recommendations.
