[At the same time, there is no doubt that the] persistence of unresolved conflicts increases the attractiveness of the South Caucasus for transnational criminal networks. Moreover, crime creates incentives on both sides of the deadlocked conflicts to preserve the status quo, and this is immensely detrimental to most people in the region, but at the same time beneficial to those profiting from crime.

The drug trade is the leading business in transnational organized crime, primarily because it is where the largest profits are made. But, Cornell argues that the drug trade is by no means the only international criminal activity in the Caucasus. The smuggling of small and heavy weapons, as well as materials for WMD, also happens there. The region figures in the North-South direction with the smuggling of arms and WMD components from Russia to the Middle East; in the East-West direction with the smuggling of arms from Asia to Europe; and in the South-North direction with the smuggling of small amounts of sophisticated weaponry to Chechnya.16

Following Cornell, criminal networks also challenge state control over territory. As the example of the Pankisi Gorge illustrates, a lack of control also endangers the Caucasian states’ relations with their neighbours. Crime also influences the effectiveness of foreign, security and aid policies of Western states towards the South Caucasus and is a problem that should be incorporated into those policies in order for them to become effective in achieving their stated aim of improving security and economic development in the region.

The abovementioned simply illustrates how transnational crime could be a potent factor effecting the political and economic future of the South Caucasus.

The drug trade is the leading business in transnational organised crime, primarily because it is where the largest profits are made.

[Seite 35]

The drug trade is by no means the only international criminal activity in the Caucasus. The smuggling of small and heavy weapons, as well as materials for WMD, also happens in the region. As with the drug trade, the weakness of law enforcement and the geographic location of the Caucasus combine to make the area an important transhipment point. But unlike the drug trade, the Caucasus figures in the north-south direction, with the smuggling of arms and WMD components from Russia to the Middle East; in the east-west direction, with the smuggling of arms from Asia to Europe; and in the south-north direction, with the smuggling of small amounts of sophisticated weaponry to Chechnya.

While speculative, this simply illustrates how transnational crime could be a potent factor affecting the political and economic future of the South Caucasus.
