Why do victims of criminal extortion resist victimization in different ways? Eduardo Moncada, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Barnard College, argues that the nature of pre-existing associational institutions and whether police are autonomous from criminal actors shapes the nature and trajectory of collective responses to criminal extortion. The study compares responses to criminal extortion in Colombia, El Salvador, and Mexico.
