Event details

North Africa is a transit, destination and consumer hub for cigarette trafficking by local organised criminal groups and those from the Sahel, the Gulf and the Balkans. This event profiles new research into the lucrative trade, its many illegal flows and North Africa’s pivotal role in global networks.

In addition to the well-known Maghreb to Europe route, a Europe to North Africa trafficking path is growing, with Balkans operatives playing a key role with counterparts in Libya, Egypt and Tunisia.
