Smugleri i Det sydfynske Øhav: i kulturhistorisk lys

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


Smuggling has been influential and dominant in the south Funen archipelago since the Middle Ages, but has not been thoroughly subjected to closer analysis. The work done on smuggling tends to interpret it in strictly economic terms. This article aims to dissect smuggling as a phenomenon and test whether or not economic theory is sufficient for an understanding of its history. The article argues that although profit remains at the core of smuggling, several other factors have determined its development. The conclusion is that cultural acceptance of smuggling as a profession, access to smuggler markets and goods via maritime industries and changing borders all play a large role in understanding the history of smuggling.
