Abstract:
Despite the fact that cigarette smuggling has a long history in specific contexts, it has only relatively recently received some media attention in Greece. It is now suggested that contraband cigarettes represent 8 percent of total cigarette consumption in the country and that the cigarette-smuggling business deprives the Greek state of millions in taxes. The purpose of this article, which draws on a variety of data sources and builds on a previous study of a cigarette-smuggling network in Greece, is to provide an account of the social organization of the cigarette black market in Greece.
