Thieves in law - Russian organised crime
A seminar with Mark Galeotti and Erik Andermo on organised crime in Russia.
The panel discussed how Russian organised crime has changed and developed from the Soviet era to present day. How has organised crime penetrated the country´s financial and political structures? Is the distinction clear between crime, politics and law enforcement or are these just different versions of each other? What does the future hold for the thieves in law?
Mark Galeotti, Senior Researcher at the Institute of International Relations, Prauge. The author of the book “The Vory: Russia's Super Mafia”.
Erik Andermo, Analyst at UI's Russia and Euraisa Programme.
The seminar was moderated by Hedvig Pettersson, Programme Manager of UI's Russia and Euraisa Programme.
