Organized Crime and Corona Virus in Mexico

Small Wars Journal – El Centro Fellows Gary J. Hale and Nathan P. Jones just published a Policy Brief on Organized Crime and COVID-19 at the Center for the United States and Mexico at Rice University’s Baker institute for Public Policy.  The brief “Organized Crime and the Coronavirus in Mexico” looks at COVID-19 related disruption of illicit supply change and the potential for an expansion of predatory activities by criminal cartels.   A brief literature review, discussion of violence potentials, and the impact on drug markets, and the impact on the organized crime landscape are also discussed.
