Illicit lifestyle' communities and communication in disaster situations
Furthermore, practitioners noted that some communities are difficult to communicate with, as they may have illicit lifestyles and interactions with authorities: “The relationship they have with authorities is always very “distant”, because they often work in a total illicit way and they cannot ask for assistance saying “I am the one who manages 200 people…”. There is a substantial incommunicability between big parts of these micro-societies and authorities” (G4; R10 - see source document for full reference).
