crimeTransnational organized crime remains a continually growing challenge facing many countries as well as the international community. High levels of organised crime adversely affect a country’s ability to achieve economic development. Organised crime undermines government institutions and public trust in the state and even endangers democracy itself.

Unless further efforts are invested into multi-dimensional and integrated approaches addressing the root causes, mobilisation strategies and catalysts, the combat of transnational organised crime will remain fettered and criminals will continue to enjoy the fruits of their illegal activities.
