“UNDERSTANDING AND TACKLING THE ROOTS OF INSECURITY” AT THE ECPR GENERAL CONFERENCE
The ECPR Standing Group on Organised Crime had the pleasure of participating, once more, in the ECPR’s annual conference. This year’s event, at the University of Glasgow, was particularly marked by a high turn-out of participants, excellent organization, and topical subjects, such as the on-going debate on Scottish secession from the United Kingdom. The Section proposed by the Standing Group on “Understanding and Tackling the Roots of Insecurity: terrorism, transnational organized crime and corruption” was among the best attended and was characterized by a very high standard of presentations and discussion. The Section, which was our largest so far with 65 participants, was composed of 9 panels, covering a large range of security topics interconnected with organized crime.
