This chapter presents an overview of the development of Cosa Nostra since the early 1990s, in the aftermath of the brutal second mafia war and the massacres carried out in 1992-94, whereby Cosa Nostra challenged state institutions through a new terrorist-style strategy. The period that followed was highly complex, with inquiries thrown off track, negotiations and secret deals made with opaque external actors whose contours are only now beginning to emerge. The final section highlights the difficulties faced by Cosa Nostra today as it suffers from a serious leadership crisis and uncertain future prospects.
