GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany (August 27, 2015) - The European Union isn’t the only place where irregular migration is a hot political and national challenge. Thailand Army Col. Thammanoon Maisonti asks questions about his nation’s concerns with Chinese Muslims and other refugees arriving from the sea to lecturer Italian navy retired Rear Adm. Alberto Cervone. Cervone, former Marshall Center professor of security studies and Italian Defense Chair, described the drivers, characteristics and challenges of trafficked migrants during his presentation on “Irregular Migration and Migrant Smuggling” yesterday in the Countering Narcotics and Illicit Trafficking resident course here. The opportunity to seek answers to difficult trafficking questions with subject matter experts and students from nearly 50 nations is what makes the CNIT course unique.  (Marshall Center photo by KarlHeinz Wedhorn /RELEASED)
