Wildlife Trafficking and Poaching: Contemporary Context and Dynamics for Security Cooperation and Military Assistance [open pdf - 17MB]
"Dr. Chris Jasparro's case study on poaching analyzes the intricate web of greed and grievances that drive illicit poaching and smuggling networks across the continent of Africa. Jasparro blends his years of field research on the topic with his background as a geographer to both paint broad-brush pictures of how criminals profit from illicit networks and provide detailed recommendations on how to address these challenges. Classroom instructors should find the questions at the end of the case study a solid foundation for instruction and essay assignments. Practitioners and scholars focused on how criminal networks function and exploit seams and gaps in coverage and policy should find the recommendations a nuanced discussion on how to respond to this challenge."
