Lecture by Dr. Mark Galeotti

Dr. Mark Galeotti will lend his expertise on the rise of organized crime in Russia, how it spread in the U.S. and globally, and how it affects international security. Galeotti serves as Academic Chair for New York University’s Center for Global Affairs and is the author of more than twelve books. He is a specialist in transnational organized crime, security affairs and modern Russia. In his fieldwork, Galeotti encountered the rising of a new generation of gangsters filling up pockets of the decaying Soviet Union and was one of the first Western academics to recognize this as an emerging security concern. He also founded the Organized Russian & Eurasian Crime Research Unit at Keele University in England; the only such unit in Europe specializing in organized crime. The event begins at 6 p.m. with a reception which includes hors d’ oeuvres and one complimentary cocktail followed by a lecture at 7 p.m. Please plan to arrive before 7 to ensure seating.
