In the next installation of the Broadening Engagement with Global Peace and Security series, ISA James N. Rosenau Postdoctoral Fellow, Evelyn N. Mayanja, interviews Will Fitzgibbon and Jelena Cosic, journalists from The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).
Since the establishment of the United Nations peacekeeping mission in 1948, the international community has endeavored to de-escalate wars and armed conflicts. Neglected in the quest for peace and security are the insecurities and injustices ensuing from extractive industries, illicit finances, and organized crime in terms of how they curtail sustainable peace and security. The lethalness of these lucrative businesses impacts the lives of many people and especially vulnerable populations. It is time, following the work of the ICIJ, to make the case for addressing these activities as a means of promoting national and international peace and security.
