Latin America and Europe are working on a series of recommendations to make investigations into drug trafficking more efficient
International cooperation networks linking Latin America and Europe are working to define a series of operational recommendations aimed at making drug trafficking investigations more efficient. This initiative is the result of the seminar recently held in Asunción, Paraguay, entitled “The places where illegal drugs are trafficked and the urgent need to coordinate investigations in prisons and border areas”. This event, which brought together senior representatives from fifteen countries on June 21 and 22, was organised by EUROFRONT, EL PAcCTO and COPOLAD III, all programmes financed by the European Union.
The Triple Frontier, before and after the border closures, through the eyes of Catia Marinangeli
The Triple Frontier is the main border of South America in terms of population, movement of people and international relations. Located at the point where Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil meet, this three-way border is also on one of the most important tourist routes in the subcontinent. These characteristics accentuate the complexity of border management for the three countries involved while also increasing the need for crime prevention. How has this situation evolved in the last year within the context of the pandemic? To answer this question, on behalf of the Instituto Italo - Latino Americano – IILA, in collaboration with FIIAPP and IOM, we asked Catia Marinangeli, a EUFOFRONT expert who is stationed at the border.
