Event description

Description

Lines, Flows, and Transnational Crime: Toward a Revised Approach to Countering the Underworld of Globalization.

A free and open to the public speaking event that features the former commissioner for U.S. Custom and Borders Protection.

His presentation will propose a new framework for combating transnational criminal activity. He will argue that Global illicit flows perpetrated by organized crime, in the interstices of lawful trade and travel, represent the principal security threat in today’s world, and that the Westphalian system of nation-state regulation is ill equipped to confront it. He advances a series of propositions that he contends should underlie the new and revised national security/law enforcement approach he advocates.

Mr. Alan Bersin, former commissioner for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection will speak Wednesday, January 24, 2018 at 7 p.m. at the Elizabeth D. Rockwell Pavilion in MD Anderson Library on the University of Houston campus.

Hosted by the Borders, Trade, and Immigration (BTI) Institute.
