"It is my pleasure to present this publication's summary and conclusions from our 2015 Symposium on Transnational Organized Crime (TOC) conducted with our Canadian Special Operations Forces (CANSOF) and Mexican special operations and law enforcement partners. Why is TOC a concern and why should it be a concern to our special operations community? The nexus between criminal and terrorist networks is significant and evolving, and the threat to our nations' security demands that we collectively explore regional whole-of-government approaches and determine the potential Special Operations Forces (SOF) roles for countering and diminishing these violent destabilizing networks. The panel summaries that fill this publication detail our national sovereignty challenges, shared opportunities, and most importantly, some very useful conclusions regarding the employment of SOF against TOC."
