Stockholm seminar on the Afghan heroin trade

Institute for Security and Development Policy (ISDP) Transnational Organized Crime Initiative invites to a Transnational Crime Forum on “The Afghan Heroin Trade” with Mr. Christer Brännerud, Head of Criminal Intelligence Department, The Stockholm County Police (Söderortspolisen) on Tuesday, March 26, 2013, 13:00-15:30. ISDP, Västra Finnbodavägen 2, Stockholm-Nacka (show on map).

Based on his nearly decade long experience working for UNODC in the region, Mr. Brännerud will discuss different aspects of the heroin trade emanating from Afghanistan. Although his statement will have a regional focus, Mr. Brännerud will use Southern Tajikistan as a prime example of how the drug trafficking affects society, the level of corruption and the people involved.

Mr. Christer Brännerud is a Superintendent and Head of the Intelligence Department at the Stockholm County Police (Söderortspolisen). From 1979 to 1995 he worked within the uniformed police force. Between 1995 and 2002, Mr. Brännerud worked at the Drug Sub Division at Interpol HQS in Lyon, France. During this period, he also received intelligence analysis training at Warwick University, UK. Upon his return to Lyon after completed training he was assigned the post as Head of the Analytical Criminal Intelligence Unit, covering various crime fields globally. Starting in 2004, Mr. Brännerud was posted to Dushanbe, Tajikistan where he worked for the UNODC in Central Asia, Afghanistan and Caucasus. Only as of January 1st this year, Mr. Brännerud returned to Sweden.
