Reorganizing Crime: Mafia and Anti-Mafia in Post-Soviet Georgia
Gavin Slade (post-doctoral fellow, Freie Universität Berlin) will present his book Reorganizing Crime: Mafia and Anti-Mafia in Post-Soviet Georgia (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2013) during this seminar.
Gavin Slade’s research interests focus on the relationship between prison reform and prison violence in the post-Soviet space; and the linkages between penal practices and state-building in the same area.
The event is organised jointly by the EU-FP7 project CASCADE and the Centre for Russian, East-European and Caucasian Studies (Centre d’études des mondes russe, caucasien et est-européen, CERCEC, EHESS, http://www.cercec.fr/). The working language will be English. Gilles Favarel-Garrigues (CERI-Sciences Po) will act as a discussant.
