Book Forum: "Criminals, Militias, and Insurgents"

‘Criminals, Militias, and Insurgents’ was written by Dr. Phil Williams, Visiting Research Professor at SSI and the founding editor of the journal Transnational Organized Crime. Dr. Williams has been a consultant to both the United Nations and United States government agencies on organized crime. In this book Dr. Williams looks in detail at major criminal activities in Iraq and also considers the critical role played by corruption in facilitating and strengthening organized crime. He also explains the rise of organized crime after the U.S.
invasion and identifies necessary responses to organized crime and corruption in Iraq.
At this Book Forum, co-hosted by CLAI and SSI, Dr. Williams was joined on the program by Dr. William Rosenau of the RAND Corporation, and Dr. John T. Picarelli of the National Institute of Justice.
