Trafics de drogues et criminalité organisée : une relation complexe

Abstract : Drug trafficking is a poorly identified sociological object, even though its development feeds debates about crime, in France as in the majority of Western countries. This ambiguity, resulting from ideological and institutional as well as methodological factors, also translates the complexity of the social forms of trafficking, which are too often reduced to their most simple expression. Two sources of heterogeneity can be described: the heterogeneity of the trafficking on one side, and the heterogeneity of its treatment by the legal system on the other. This article discusses large scale trafficking, that is to say, the hybrid forms little explored between multinational drug trafficking and trade on the street.
