Rajeev Gundur is a lecturer in the department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology at the University of Liverpool. His research has focused on issues of organized crime and illicit enterprise, most notably Mexican drug trafficking organizations and street and prison gangs in the United States. He interested how illicit enterprise empowers actors to challenge the control structures of the state. Currently, he is developing a project with colleagues at the Higher School of Economics in Saint Petersburg to look at the role of sanctions and counter sanctions on providing opportunities for illicit entrepreneurs to trade in otherwise legal, non-stigmatized items. He is also interested in cybercrime, citizenship, and migration issues. He holds a Ph.D. from Cardiff University in criminology. He has an MSc in criminology from The University of Oxford and an MA in international relations from the Australian National University where he was a Hedley Bull scholar. He also earned a BA in Latin American studies and Spanish from Tulane University.
