This booklet constitutes the sixth chapter of the ITTP NEXUS in Europe and Beyond Report. It presents the emerging implications that may guide policy makers, regulators and LEAs to devise strategies to combat and prevent cigarette smuggling within and among the countries included in the analysis. The booklet is divided into six sections. Each section outlines the key policy implications associated with one of the six explanatory factors affecting cigarette trafficking: political, geographical, regulation and enforcement, socio-economic, cultural, and criminal. Some of these factors concern macro problems:• conflicts and political instability for political factors;• high unemployment rates for economic factors;• high level of corruption, presence of active OCGs and terrorist groups for criminal factors.These macro problems require a holistic approach when working towards a solution. The suggested policies propose broad strategies to address the issues.The other factors are directly related to cigarette trafficking. The corresponding suggested policies are specifically tailored to fill the apparent gaps in the current approaches, methods and regulations in the fight against cigarette trafficking.
