Politics of controlling organised crime in China

IMG_1311BProfessor Sonny Lo, of the Department of Social Sciences at the Hong Kong Institute of Education, discussed insights of his new book, “The Politics of Controlling Organization Crime in Greater China”, on how the governments of mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao have been controlling organised crime activities such as triads, terrorism, narcotics, prostitution and illegal gambling at an FCC lunch on January 21.

Lo said that state capacities of controlling organised crime vary in these four places are  phenomena also reflective of not only state autonomy from the influence of crime groups but also state legitimacy in the combat against criminal groups. Most importantly, police cooperation across the  different legal jurisdictions could enhance state capacities, autonomy and legitimacy in organised crime control.

Lo’s previous books include “Hong Kong’s Indigenous Democracy” (2015) and “The Politics of Earthquake Management in China” (2014).
