How kidnapping became a big business

Sarah Best

16th January 2020

This video from The Economist looks at how kidnapping has become a big business.

A growing insurance industry has sprung up as a result as companies take out kidnap for ransom insurance policies for employees working in kidnap hotspots.

This video could be used for the Crime and Deviance (state crime, globalisation, human rights).
