Not related to Russia – at least not in this first batch of speakers – but I just wanted to mention a new series I’ll be hosting at the Center for Global Affairs at New York University, in which I’l be engaging academic experts in some aspect of modern organised crime in a discussion about their work. This semester, we’ll be looking at Burma’s Wa region drug warlords with Ko-lin Chin (Rutgers-Newark) on March 1, Eastern Europe with Kelly Hignett (Hull, UK) on March 22 and Mexico with Pablo Piccato (Columbia) on April 12. These are free public events, but you do need to register in advance – details are here.
