CTOC Students Learn about Efforts to Combat Terrorism and Transnational Organized Crime in Peru

May 20, 2015

On May 19, our alumnus, retired Brigadier General Augusto Álvarez from Peru guest lectured to our 2015 Combating Transnational Organized Crime specialized course via videoconference on Sendero Luminoso as a case of the convergence of terrorism and crime in Peru. Having studied convergence theory as one of our previous CTOC students, General Álvarez discussed the security threats posed by Sendero Luminoso though its criminal activities in drug, arms, human trafficking and illegal mining and explained the Peruvian government’s current strategies and policies to co20mbat the terror group. Thanks to modern technology, we continue to build our network of security and defense professionals through these educational engagements in person and in the virtual world like this one.
