Mapping the illicit Car Trade in Nigeria:Implications for the Political Economy of Nigeria
The positive impacts of globalization are counter balanced by the dark side which is often destructive to sovereign states and their citizens. Illicit international trade is an important example of this. However, this has only been incompletely researched as an aspect of political economy. This is largely because the issue has fallen uneasily across a variety of disciplines, such as Economics, Criminology and Politics. This thesis aimed to add to existing understanding by addressing this gap. Therefore, this research focused on mapping illicit car trade and its implications for the political economy of Nigeria. The specific objectives of this research are to show the nature of illicit car trade in Nigeria; the factors facilitating illicit car trade in Nigeria and the impacts of illicit car trade on Nigeria’s political economy.
