However, this unanimity is entirely relative if put back into the context of the whole body of literature on organized crime, especially its “critical” arm. On reading several works on this subject, it soon becomes apparent that they reflect conflicting, divergent and often contradictory views. From this only one conclusion can be reached: a particular (alarmist and sensationalist) frame of reference has been used and propagated to the detriment of other forms of analysis. Adopting a sociological approach to crime makes it possible to question the stereotypes and leitmotif which, by being relayed, repeated and trotted out over and over again in official discourse, the media and some academic works, have obscured the complexity of the notion of organized crime in favor of a simplistic and caricatured interpretation.

In 1998, at the Birmingham Summit, the G7/8 identified four problems that reflected the prevailing fears at that time: unemployment, organized crime, the financial panic and world poverty. The aim of this chapter is to understand the shift in G7 discourse from the fight against drug trafficking and the laundering of its proceeds to the fight against transnational crime in its broader sense. The Emergence of “Transnational Organized Crime” on to the International Stage The declarations issued at the two G7 Summits which followed the 1991 London Summit, where the problem of drug trafficking and money laundering had been raised, made no mention at all of international crime.

Its influence was also obvious at the G7 Summit in Paris in 1989. The internationalization of the fight against drugs was also accompanied by discourses that increasingly advocated mobilization around the so-called “support” activities linked to these kinds of crimes, in particular money laundering, which became the dominant discourse throughout the 1990s in all institutions (at national, regional and international level).
