The brighter side of darknet drug dealing

Dr James Martin

We may have more to learn from the "dark net" than expected? What about pure supply and demand, safer illegal trade or innovative customer service? Dr James Martin is a senior lecturer and criminology program coordinator at the Department of Security Studies & Criminology at Macquarie University.

His award-winning research monograph - Drugs on the Dark Net: How Cryptomarkets are Transforming the Global Trade in Illicit Drugs - was the first scholarly book published on this topic, and introduced key concepts regarding the growth and impact of the darknet on the practice and policing of illicit drug markets.
