Global Weekly Podcast: Ep. 3

Cross-Border Shadows: The Narco Economy Shaping Politics

In this episode of the Global Weekly Podcast, Ihsan Mutlu, our senior financial analyst, is joined by Toby Gill, the founder of the platform, to delve into the clandestine world of narcotics and its significant impact on global politics.

We cover Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria with its alleged connections to the international Captagon trade and how Myanmar rebel groups alongside the ruling military junta are revitalising poppy production in the wake of Afghanistan's withdrawal from international drug production and trafficking networks.
