Organized crime and illicit economies interact in complex ways with violent conflict, often fueling it. They also shape peace negotiations and post-conflict transition, deeply influencing post-conflict economic and political arrangements as well as regime transitions. C How to devise appropriate and well-sequenced policies toward organized crime and illicit economies, though often inadequately addressed, thus lies at the crux of post-conflict stabilization and successful regime transitions. On April 28, the Latin America Initiative at Brookings will host a panel discussion of the crime-conflict-regime transition dynamics and launch the findings of a United Nations University Centre for Policy Research project on this topic.
