Sandro Calvani. Foreword: Doctors without borders (Italy), 13 Jun 2003
Drugs and human traffickers, weapon smugglers, money launderers and human organs brokers are riding the globalization process to fulfill their own goals and to spread their turnover.
They often take advantage of some State’s political and bureaucratic frailty and corruption.
Based on the UN’s official documents and on first hand witnesses, this work lists the actual criminal activities and demonstrates how acting within crime’s generator conditions (i.e. poverty, inequity and market without respect for human beings) is much more effective than any repressive strategy implemented in isolation.
