Jun 14, 2011 Guinea-Bissau: Drug Trade in Broader Context
"In Guinea-Bissau, drug trafficking ... is a consequence of the
pre-existing lack of stability that allows smugglers to
establish their networks in the region and operate to and from
there. Ignoring the structural causes of the problem (endemic
poverty, corruption, impunity) will have an even deeper impact
on the local population than the illegal drug trade, and will
leave unaddressed the very conditions that continue to foster
trafficking opportunities in the future." - February 2011
report from Norwegian Peacebuilding Center
Jul 28, 2008 Guinea-Bissau: In Need of a State
"Drugs arrive by boat or by air from Venezulea, Colombia, or Brazil
to be stored in Guinea-Bissau before being redistributed in smaller
lots to Europe. The process is relatively easy for the
traffickers. The state of Guinea-Bissau has no logistical capacity
to control its territory, particularly some 90 coastal islands." -
