In this video, Max Manwaring explores the world of gangs and transnational criminal organizations (TCOs), in particular their impact on national security and state sovereignty. He begins by describing the origins of Central American gangs and other TCOs and explains how they evolved into entities capable of taking over entire countries. Transnational criminal organizations pose many different threats around the world; Manwaring describes their structure, global network, principal activities, and motives. These organizations have undergone a three-generation evolutionary process and today represent one of the most dangerous menaces to law enforcement in Latin America and around the world. Manwaring explains what needs to be done to eliminate these threats, focusing on solutions that have worked in other regions and that could be adapted to Guatemala.
