    How do high levels of crime and violence affect the private sector, and what are the options for helping local businesses and business groups survive and thrive in such environments? Join CSIS for a discussion of a new book by the World Bank on how local businesses and business groups have dealt with violence in Brazil, Colombia, Jamaica, Mexico, Nepal, and Rwanda. Authors Mike Goldberg, Kwang Wook Kim, and Maria Ariano will discuss findings, hosted by Robert D. Lamb, CSIS scholar and author of the chapter on Meddellin, Colombia.
