Mark Galeotti, Clinical Professor and Academic Chair, Center for Global Affairs, New York University


Russian, Russia-based and Eurasian organized crime is a serious global issue. The activities of these crime networks involve the financial sector, drug and human trafficking, illicit arms sales and cybercrime, among others. The proceeds of their activities flow through money-laundering schemes in western Europe and also safe havens such as Cyprus, the Cayman Islands, Venezuela and Vanuatu. Mark Galeotti will discuss the effect of these transnational linkages on global security.
