Kidnapping for ransom works like a market. How it is organized is surprising. (source -The Washington Post)

Hi, I would suggest all people involved in trip over “dangerous countries” and their organisations’ to read the linked article.

Ransom and mediation in a kidnap situation are always a big problem, and in the article you can probably understand how big is it!

As my short and probably “silly or naive” consideration, I think it would be way better for people, organisations, NGOs, etc, that work in dangerous areas, to attend a proper preparation and training, to connect themselves with serious and diligent “travel Risk Management” company, thus to drastically reduce the probability to be be subject to “an abduction”.

 

It isn’t kidnappers who regulate the market for hostage taking. It’s insurance companies.
