“Outwitted: Are Europe’s Gangs Smarter than Its Governments?” by Chris Dalby

Thursday 4 April, 20:00 - 22:00

Drug seizures and gang violence are rising year-on-year across Europe. Scare-mongering stories about “torture containers” and “super cartels” dominate the headlines.

Yet the EU is bitterly divided by political and practical contradictions. Some policymakers call for more police, more prisons and more arrests. Others favour decriminalisation and de-escalation. Ports awash with cocaine promise to work together while also being business rivals. Latin American partners are struggling to make a difference.

And meanwhile, drug traffickers are laughing all the way to the bank.

Chris Dalby is the Director at World of Crime. He is the founder of this media company and publishing house, focused on revealing the inner workings of organized crime around the world. Furthermore, at InSight Crime, he worked as the lead editor for both daily news reporting and long-term investigative reporting on organized crime across Latin America and the Caribbean.
