  The Turbulent Nexus Of Transnational Organised Crime And Terrorism: A Theory of Malevolent International Relations
 
 
Title: The Turbulent Nexus Of Transnational Organised Crime And Terrorism: A Theory of Malevolent International Relations
Author: Picarelli, John T.
Appeared in: Global crime
Paging: Volume 7 (2006) nr. 1 pages 1-24
Year: 2006-02
Contents: International relations scholars and practitioners alike have paid increasing attention to how malevolent non-state actors like terror groups and transnational criminal organisations challenge the state and otherwise threaten secure and stable human relations. Scholars and experts have yet to agree on the existence, nature and scope of enduring alliances (or a nexus) between crime and terror groups. In this article, the author wades into the debate and offers a new perspective using an analytical framework rooted in James Rosenau's postinternationalist paradigm. Drawing on research gathered through a recently-completed comparative study of the crime-terror nexus, the article notes that two forms of the crime-terror nexus exist. Such bifurcation eclipses the more parsimonious view that criminals and terrorists only engage in marriages of convenience to further their methods but their motives maintain long-term separation. The articles concludes with suggestions on how to develop state policies that address all forms of the crime-terror nexus.
