This Article examines organized crime in Iberoamerica. It also examines the international mechanisms implemented to combat it, specifically the 1988 United Nations Convention Against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances, the 1996 Organization of American States Inter-American Convention against Corruption of 1996, and the United Nations Convention on Transnational Organized Crime of 2000. It then examines whether these efforts have been successful or unsuccessful, and whether multilateral instruments are a formidable tool in the war against international organized crime or merely toothless tigers.
