POLITICAL-CRIMINAL NEXUS

Tanja Miloshevska

Abstract


A political-criminal nexus, the concentration and fusion of political
and criminal power, is increasingly reaching the highest level of
many nation-states. Organized crime groups develop collaborative relationships
with state authorities to gain access to, and to exploit for
their own purposes, the political. Economical and social apparatus of
the state. To increase the security of their operations, they also try to
develop arrangements with local and/or national, political and legal
authorities. For their part, state authorities seek cooperative relationships
with criminal elements for various reasons such as personal
benefits, securing votes, money, or to control enemies.
The study seeks to identify the factors that facilitate the entrenchment
of the political-criminal nexus, such as rapid technological
change, privatization or political transition.
The objectives of this paper are to determine with precision
how this relationships are established, what collaborative activities are
undertaken by this nexus, and to identify the methods of disrupting this ties.


Key words: POLITICAL-CRIMINAL NEXUS, POWER, SECURITY,
