Organized crime has accumulated an enormous capacity for inflicting violence. For nearly a century, mafias, cartels, and gangs have woven together a network that fosters all types of illegal activities. Professor Aguayo will present an overview of this process through the personalities of three key gangsters. He will also make an argument for a regional and comprehensive response.
